An attorney, an accountant and two medical administrators were convicted Monday for their parts in a $154-million insurance fraud scheme in which hundreds of healthy patients were recruited to undergo unnecessary and dangerous surgeries to fraudulently bill insurance providers, Orange County prosecutors said.

A jury found the four defendants guilty of charges related to revenue and tax fraud for the massive scheme, according to a statement from the Orange County district attorney’s office.
