Restitution is on the way for more than five hundred victims of a Detroit area doctor who were forced to go through needless cancer treatments. Farid Fata was sentenced to 45 years in 2015, after admitting to the poisoning of hundreds of patients through unnecessary treatments for an estimated $17 million dollars in fraudulent billings. According to the Associated Press, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Detroit said Monday that about three-quarters of the claims submitted so far have been approved.
