Doctor Rassan Tarabein, a Baldwin County practitioner who immigrated from Syria, was sentenced in Montgomery County Court to 5 years in prison - the same amount of jail time he received in his federal sentence earlier last month.

Tarabein's federal sentence includes repaying the nearly $15,000,000 he stole from health insurance programs over a 13-year period that began in 2004. His clinic was raided by the FBI in 2016.
