Maybe he should be happy that he didn't end up with 175 years like the prosecutor wanted. 50-year-old Dr. Farid Fata from Detroid received 45 years in prison for misdiagnosing over 500 patients in order to rake in millions of dollars from insurance companies. Many of these patients didn't even have cancer when they were being treated, a fact that Fata was conscious of.
Not many people were happy with the ruling, as the prosecutor put it, its "not justice at all." Fata reportedly broke down during the ruling and begged for a lighter sentence. Playing the victim when he was really the oppressor didn't fool anyone. His sentence was not changed.
