San Fernando Valley Doctor Back In California To Face Felony Sex Charges

csleaWhen California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) peace officers travelled to Arizona to fetch a California doctor who was trying to escape  sex assault charges, they were not dealing with a first time criminal offender.

Pezhman Ebrahimzadeh, M.D. (aka Pez Abrahams) was extradited to California on August 15, 2014 to face charges in Los Angeles County Superior Court.  Charges were filed against Abrahams after an investigation by DCA's Division of Investigation into sex crimes against the doctor's patients.

"This former physician is not new to our CSLEA team of law enforcement officers," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents DCA peace officers along with California Department of Justice (DOJ) special agents who have also investigated Ebrahimzadeh.

DOJ special agents in the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse lent their expertise into the investigation of Ebrahimzadeh in a $3 million Medicare fraud case in which Ebrahimzadeh pleaded guilty and was sentenced to prison on April 15, 2013.

"He scammed Medicare out of $3 million for procedures that were never performed," said Barcelona.  "Now he's accused of sexually assaulting a patient during a physical exam.  I commend our CSLEA law enforcement members who work these types of cases to protect Californians from fraud and assault and for bringing this suspect back to California to face the charges against him."
