Severin Yelaun of Framingham, Mass. was convicted by a federal trial jury on 26 counts of mail fraud, one count of health-care fraud, one count of conspiracy, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
An investigation revealed that Yelaun was the partial owner of Global Tech Diagnostics and involved Lynn Diagnostics Management. The two companies billed auto insurance companies for diagnostic tests that were never done, which brought the total fraudulent billings to more than $150,000.
Yelaun faces up to 20 years in prison for the conviction and a possible five-year imprisonment for conspiracy.
