DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Mark A. DeSimone is facing five counts of violating the patient brokering law just hours after Boca’s David Remland was charged with similar offenses. It’s all part of an ongoing investigation into so called “sober houses” or addiction treatment centers.
DeSimone, of 8173 Valhalla Drive in the Mizner Country Club, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail around 10a. He remains locked up midday Thursday. Bond has not yet been set.
Update: May 12th, 2017 at 10:10am: Here is the affidavit of probable cause.
