Wolf provided psychotherapy to U.S. government workers who were hurt on the job or had employment-related illnesses. Prosecutors say Wolf filed false claims for services not completed or done on a limited schedule.

Wolf claimed he provided therapy for one injured federal employee, from 2008 through mid-2013, seven days a week. Investigators say Wolf only offered assistance a couple of times a week or exaggerated the amount of therapy done.
