YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The former owner of an Austintown drug rehab clinic was sentenced to 90 months in prison on Wednesday in federal court.

Ryan Sheridan, 39, was on fraud charges by U.S. Judge Benita Y. Pearson in the U.S. Northern District Court Of Ohio.

Prosecutors said as the owner of Braking Point Recovery Center, Sheridan helped orchestrate the billing of $48 million for services that weren’t provided, weren’t medically necessary, lacked proper documentation or had other issues that made them ineligible for reimbursement.

Two others indicted with Sheridan were sentenced on Tuesday.
