Three defendants were convicted Tuesday in a scheme to help Long Island Rail Road employees receive disability payments by exaggerating or making up ailments.
A Long Island doctor was sentenced to eight years in prison this week for his part in a massive scheme enabling Long Island Rail Road workers to collect disability fraudulently.
Dr. Peter Ajemian, an orthopedist with a practice in Rockville Centre, is the latest to plead guilty to taking part in a Long Island Rail Road disability fraud scheme.
“I believe they were gaming the system and it is the responsibility of the Long Island Rail Road, and it has been my responsibility since 2008 to change the culture at this railroad,” LIRR President Helena Williams said.
