ORDER, FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS as to Zia Iqbal. Defendant Zia Iqbal waived jury trial and the Court held a bench trial, which began on January 19, 2016. The trial concluded after two days of evidence. On February 10, 2016, I reconvened the trial for the purpose of stating my decision on the charges in open court. At that time I announced my finding of guilt on the charges in the indictment, for the reasons stated on the record in open court and as set forth in more detail herein. As I have found defendant guilty as charged and pronounced the finding of guilt in open court in defendant's presence, I will set the matter for sentencing. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the sentencing in this matter is set for Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. in Courtroom 14-South. All Objections to the presentence report must be filed no later than April 21, 2016. If testimony is expected counsel must notify the court at least one week before sentencing. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the parties must file any sentencing memoranda no later than May 5, 2016 except that a response to a sentencing memorandum may be filed no later than May 9, 2016. Signed by District Judge Catherine D. Perry on 2/10/2016. (CBL)

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER as to Zia Iqbal. Nothing presented in defendant's motion convinces me that my earlier interpretation of the law is incorrect. The legal distinction urged by defendant is not supported by the language of the statute. He clearly both solicited and received payments in return for his causing patients to be referred to the agency. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendants motion for judgment of acquittal and new trial 60 is denied. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this case remains set for sentencing on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. in Courtroom 14-South. Signed by District Judge Catherine D. Perry on 6/13/2016. (CBL)
