One of the ringleaders of a massive $23 million auto insurance fraud pleaded guilty this week to his role in an elaborate crime ring that operated at several South Florida chiropractic clinics. Felix Filenger, who agents said drove around in a Bentley and doled out kickbacks from a suitcase stuffed with cash, faces a maximum punishment of 20 years in federal prison. He has been locked up since October. Prosecutors said he was one of the leaders of a profitable group of corrupt clinic owners, chiropractors and attorneys that operated mostly in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties.
