A Brooklyn doctor was sentenced this week to one year in prison for her involvement in a car insurance scheme.
Officials say Tatyana Gabinskaya, 60, is the 32nd defendant convicted as part of an indictment that charged 36 people with conspiracy to commit mail and health care fraud.
Federal prosecutors say she was part of a group of doctors and lawyers who participated in the largest ever fraud case involving the state's no-fault auto insurance law.
The law requires quick payments of up to $50,000 for victims in an auto accident, regardless of fault.
Officials say the group was recruiting car accident victims, prescribing unnecessary treatments, and then submitting false claims to insurance companies.
Gabinskaya is also required to forfeit $69,000 and pay restitution to victims.
