    Dr. Owen Rogal and Kim Rogal are each charged with one count of corrupt organizations, one count of criminal conspiracy, 15 counts of insurance fraud, 12 counts of theft by deception and 10 counts of attempted theft by deception.

    A Philadelphia dentist will be incarcerated and his daughter will spend time under house arrest for submitting almost $5 million in fraudulent medical bills to insurance companies.
     
    A judge on Monday sentenced 73-year-old Owen Rogal to one-to-seven years in prison. His 52-year-old daughter Kim Rogal was ordered to serve 11-to-23 months under house arrest.
     
    Officials say the Rogals billed 15 firms at least $4,800 for pain treatments that were actually worth $800 at most. Authorities say they pocketed more than $1 million over the past decade.
     
    The Rogals pleaded guilty to insurance fraud and related charges in May after a 15-month investigation.
     
    They were also ordered to pay almost $373,000 each in restitution to seven insurance companies.
