ANSWER: According to a story in The Bee, chiropractor Todd Daniel Baldini of El Dorado Hills was arrested by state investigators in August 2004, accused of bilking automobile and workers' compensation insurers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars over a period of at least three years.

His partner, Reginald Martin "Marty" DePaoli of Carlsbad faced similar charges.

According to Sacramento Superior Court online records, Baldini and DePaoli pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of unlawful referrals under the state Insurance Code.

Felony counts of conspiracy and presenting false or fraudulent claims were dismissed.
