CEO Gets 25 Years for Fraud

The former CEO of Hollywood Pavilion psychiatric facility who was found guilty of $67-million Medicare fraud in June had asked that she be sentenced to house arrest in her waterfront mansion. Instead,  Karen Kallen-Zury, 60, was sentenced to 25 years in prison and ordered to repay the $40 million she stole, according to the Miami Herald (paywall alert)

Daisy Miller, former inpatient clinical director, was given a 15-year sentence, and therapist/administrator Christian Coloma, 12 years.
