Rogue cancer doctor appealing 45-year sentencing

Posted: Updated:

The Detroit-area doctor who put patients through excessive treatments to collect millions from insurers is appealing his 45-year sentence.

According to the Associated Press, Farid Fata’s appeal was filed on Wednesday.

“I misused my talents, yes, and permitted this sin to enter me because of power and greed,” Fata said to the Associated Press. “My quest for power is self-destructive.”

Prosecutor Catherine Dick had asked for 175-year prison sentence, while Fata sought 25 years.
