Conference set in cancer clinic fraud case

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – A telephone conference is scheduled this week for a doctor and another woman charged with participating in a health care scheme in which prosecutors say a cancer clinic gave patients diluted chemotherapy drugs and used old syringes.

Dr. Meera Sachdeva, Brittany McCoskey and Monica Weeks were indicted last August on charges including conspiracy and witness tampering related to the activities of Rose Cancer Center in Summit.

Their trial had been scheduled to begin May 2 but was postponed. McCoskey pleaded guilty to one count of fraud on May 17 and awaits sentencing.

The others have pleaded not guilty.
