WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- (WPTV) -- A local sober home operator accused of health care fraud, money laundering and prostituting female patients pleaded guilty to all three charges in federal court Wednesday.

Kenneth Chatman and his wife Laura Chatman were arrested in a bust along with four others in December.

Prosecutors read a laundry list of accusations in court Wednesday, telling Kenneth Chatman they would have proven he received kickbacks for getting patients to do expensive urine and saliva drug screening tests, that he threatened patients to keep them at his treatment facilities and coerced some of them into prostitution.
