United States v. Peterson

January 2, 2013

We defended the lead defendant, a licensed psychologist, in a federal criminal prosecution. The case involved mail fraud based upon the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment of patients with multiple personality disorders in a Houston psychiatric facility. The government’s theory was that the diagnosis was invalid and done solely to collect insurance payments. After five months in trial, the judge declared a mistrial during the government’s case, and the government later dismissed all charges against all defendants.
