'Medical mafia' don pleads guilty

A medical consultant accused of orchestrating a conspiracy among top Las Vegas doctors and lawyers to inflate personal injury settlements by many millions of dollars, has pleaded guilty to concealing knowledge of a felony, a charge known as misprision. The consultant, Howard Awand, 65, faces up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Awand's guilty plea represents just the latest twist in a colorful, long-running prosecution -- dubbed the "Medical Mafia" case -- that had seemingly stymied federal prosecutors only to turn their way in recent months. Last month, personal injury lawyer Noel Gage pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice; and in November, spine surgeon Dr. Mark Kabins pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony.
