Man gets 37-month federal prison sentence for role in long-running medical lab bribery scheme


NEWARK, New Jersey — A New Jersey man is headed to prison for his role in a long-running bribes-for-test referrals scheme involving a New Jersey lab company.

Federal prosecutors say 44-year-old Len Rubinstein, of Holmdel, received a 37-month sentence Wednesday. He also will have to serve a year of supervised release once he's freed and will forfeit $250,000.

Rubinstein had pleaded guilty to money laundering and conspiracy to commit bribery. Prosecutors say that from May 2012 through April 2013, Rubinstein agreed with officials at Parsippany-based Biodiagnostic Laboratory Services to pay doctors cash bribes to refer their patients to BLS for medical tests.

Rubinstein admitted using an entity he controlled to hide the money he received from BLS and used it to make bribe payments.
