Illinois Chiropractor Ordered to Pay $1.9 Million in Restitution

June 15, 2011

A southwestern Illinois chiropractor already sentenced to federal prison for health-care fraud and money laundering has been ordered to pay nearly $1.9 million in restitution.

Forty-one-year-old John Hardimon of Shiloh pleaded guilty last October in federal court in East St. Louis to 15 counts. He admitted that he kept virtually no records while doing business as Hardimon Chiropractic Clinic and created fake documents to bill companies or insurance funds for more than $2 million since 2006.

In March, he was sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison, followed by three years of probation.

The U.S. government has seized Hardimon’s BMW convertible and two minivans, his two homes in Shiloh and more than $714,000 in other funds.
