TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A manager at a northern New Jersey medical devices firm is going to prison for nine months for his role in a scheme to defraud hospitals out of more than $800,000.

A federal judge in Trenton on Thursday also sentenced 34-year-old Daniel Metz of Fairfield to nine months of home confinement.

The judge also sentenced 35-year-old Charles Carey Jr. of Clark to three years of probation.

Both men pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

They worked for Integra LifeSciences Corp. of Plainsboro, a provider of orthopedic products. Metz was a regional manager and Carey was a product specialist, selling medical devices to hospitals.

Prosecutors say the men used various fraudulent methods to overcharge hospitals and surgery centers.
