Did William D. Fabian, Ph.D. Commit Criminal Fraud?

In May 1994 I underwent a battery of psychological testing at the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  The testing was performed by a resident named Yu-Ling Han who worked under the supervision of William D. Fabian, Ph.D.

The testing failed to yield any psychiatric diagnosis and did not disclose any psychotic thought processes.  A handwritten bill prepared by Dr. Fabian, in his handwriting, for account number 1287229, physician number 0918, in the amount of $715 ($700 charity, $15.00 billed to me) assigned the diagnosis DSM-III 297.10, Delusional (Paranoid) Disorder, a psychotic mental illness for which anti-psychotic medication may be indicated.

The psychotic diagnosis assigned by Dr. Fabian was inconsistent with the results of the testing and may have constituted a fraud on the Social Security Administration under U.S. Code Title 42:

TITLE 42 CHAPTER 7 SUBCHAPTER VIII § 1011

§ 1011. Penalties for fraud

(1) knowingly and willfully makes or causes to be made any false statement or representation of a material fact in an application for benefits under this subchapter;

(4) having made application to receive any such benefit for the use and benefit of another and having received it, knowingly and willfully converts the benefit or any part thereof to a use other than for the use and benefit of the other individual,

shall be fined under title 18, imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

The test report suggests that I may have lied to conceal the severity of my illness.

Jeffrey Akman, I know you know all about this. You were very friendly with Jerry Wiener, M.D. You need to tell the FBI what you know.

Eugene Lambert, Esq. -- You need to get GW to tell the FBI what it knows.

Your law partner (Covington & Burling) is married to the judge who presided over this case. There is such a thing as a fiduciary duty and a duty as an officer of the court. Do your duty!

As for Eric, maybe he can get immunity.
