Former fugitive doctor in US custody, facing fraud
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. — A doctor who spent a dozen years on the run from federal fraud charges in Illinois has been returned to the United States from Peru.
Sixty-five-year-old Dr. Juan Rios was arraigned Wednesday in federal court in East St. Louis.
That's where the former Florissant, Mo., resident is accused of billing insurance companies more than $1 million for services never rendered. He's also accused of fraudulently claiming total disability insurance proceeds, using a Social Security number that wasn't his, and failing to appear at his first arraignment in 1999.
