A five-year criminal case against a former Belleville doctor and his wife has finally ended.
Rob Kamermans has plead guilty to one count of fraud and has been sentenced to pay a $1 fine and $100,000 in restitution to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.
All other charges against Kamermans and his wife, Mary Kamermans, were withdrawn on Thursday in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Belleville, Ont.
The doctor had originally faced eight charges, including fraud, money laundering, and forging medical marijuana prescriptions stemming from his work in family medicine.
“The nature of the fraud is primarily in relation to billing OHIP for things he wasn’t really able to bill them for in the circumstances” said Hastings County Crown Attorney Lee Burgess.
Charges were originally laid against Kamermans in August 2012.
