Associate Dean Martin Pritikin quoted by Dallas Morning News on Medical Fraud Case

Dallas Morning News, June 23, 2015


“It’s always been a challenge to collect restitution,” said Martin Pritikin, a professor of criminal law at Whittier Law School in California who has studied restitution processes. “You need to establish the criminal has assets and you have to go through various statutes to try to seize them. Of course, the first step is proving the guy should have to pay it back.”

“On the surface, it’s mystifying that they weren’t able to link [Mahmood] to more of the fraud,” said Pritikin, the law professor. “But a lot of the time, the criticism is that no individual is actually doing serious jail time.

“At least someone is doing a long stretch of prison in this case.”
