Two Twin Cities chiropractors have been sentenced for participating in separate multi-million dollar insurance fraud conspiracies.
Preston Ellard Forthun, 40, was sentenced to five years in prison and Adam John Burke, 34, was sentenced to seven and a half years.
In separate schemes, Forthun and Burke worked to defraud automobile insurance companies by hiring "runners" who would get accident victims to come to their clinics for unnecessary treatments. Forthun and Burke would pay the runners after the patients attended a certain amount of sessions. Once paid, the runners would also give the patients a cut.
