Man sentenced for defrauding Pasadena hospital
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a San Francisco man has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for a fraud scheme that targeted a Pasadena hospital and a Bay Area construction company.
Svidler admitted in his plea that he entered into a scheme with former Huntington Memorial Hospital construction director David Hamedany and former Columbus Manufacturing, Inc. director of engineering Tony Hamedany.
In the scheme, the hospital paid the construction firm for services that were never performed.
Svidler retained a 10 percent fee and kicked back the rest to his co-conspirators. The Hamedanys have also been found guilty in the scheme.
