July 18, 2018

Marina Del Rey, CA- Psychologist John Thomas Terrence is scheduled to be sentenced in October after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a scheme involving Skype sessions with injured workers and fraudulent billing, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced Monday.
Investigators say John Thomas Terrence, 75, saw patients in Bakersfield, California, using the Internet video chat program and generated reports for each patient that were virtually word-for-word identical, and then submitted identical bills to workers compensation insurance companies, according to a press statement. 
Terrence also admitted to assisting in submitting bills to workers compensation insurers for medical-legal evaluations for which he was not legally permitted to bill, according to the press statement. 
Terrence faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to the statement.
