PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- An Illinois man has pleaded guilty in Rhode Island to charges he shipped unwanted penis enlargers to diabetes patients as part of a Medicare fraud scheme.
Gary Winner on Thursday admitted to four charges stemming from the scheme in U.S. District Court in Providence. Earlier in the day, the 49-year-old Winner was arraigned during his first court appearance.
Prosecutors say Winner bought $26 penis enlargers from an adult website, repackaged them and shipped them to patients with information claiming the "erectile pumps" devices helped "bladder control, urinary flow and prostate comfort."
Prosecutors say Winner billed Medicare an average of $284 for each item, claiming they were used to treat erectile dysfunction.
The Northbrook, Ill.-resident has also agreed to forfeit $2.2 million.
Winner will be sentenced on Feb. 10.
