Philadelphia Union color commentator (and former Philadelphia KiXX goalkeeper) Peter Pappas is facing up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit health fraud. According to the Delco Times, Pappas – who referred to himself as “Rx slinger” in his Twitter bio (now deleted) – received almost a half-million dollars in kickbacks.
[Pappas] admitted he was recruited by a marketing company paid by pharmacies to refer people whose insurance paid for compounded medication including pain creams.
He recruited others to join the scheme.
Pappas faces up to 10 years in prison, but we all know the rich and famous and former indoor soccer keepers always get reduced time.
