EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. - A chiropractor has been ordered to pay $1.9 million in criminal restitution to 14 medical insurers and several union welfare funds.

John M. Hardimon, 41, who ran the Hardimon Chiropractic Clinic in Shiloh, Ill., was charged with federal health care fraud and money laundering. He pleaded guilty in October to 15 counts.

Hardimon admitted that he kept almost no records and submitted fake documents to insurance companies for more than $2 million since 2006, prosecutors said.

Hardimon was sentenced in March to 70 months in federal prison.

Hardimon's BMW convertible, Toyota Sierra minivan, and Chrysler Town and Country minivan were seized for restitution, along with two homes and $700,000.

Shiloh is 20 miles east of St. Louis.
