JACKSON, Miss. —

A federal judge in Mississippi is scheduled to sentence a doctor and two others convicted in a multimillion-dollar fraud involving watered-down chemotherapy drugs and old needles.

Dr. Meera Sachdeva, Brittany McCoskey and Monica Weeks will go before U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III in federal court Friday in Jackson.

Sachdeva founded the Rose Cancer Center in the south Mississippi town of Summit in 2005. She pleaded guilty July 13 to one count of health care fraud and two counts of making false statements.

Weeks, who handled the clinic's billing from her Ridgeland firm, Medical Billing Group, pleaded guilty the same day to conspiracy.

McCoskey, the office manager, pleaded guilty May 17 to making false statements.
