Dr. Fata is accused of intentionally misdiagnosing patients with cancer and ordering unnecessary chemotherapy treatments knowing that his patients wouldn't question his judgment.

Investigators say Fata billed Medicare for the treatments and earned about $24.3 million in drug infusion billings directly to Medicare.

While Fata is in jail, many people are wondering what is happening to the remaining assets from his offices located across Michigan.

A pre-trial is scheduled for March 10, 2014.
