4 defendants accused of defrauding American Senior Communities in multi-million-dollar scheme to plead guilty

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Four men indicted in a massive scheme to defraud American Senior Communities will plead guilty in the case, according to court documents filed this week.

Former CEO James Burkhart, ex-ASC COO Daniel Benson, contractor Steven Ganote and Burkhart’s brother, Joshua Burkhart, were all charged last year in connection with the scheme, which included massive fraud and kickbacks totaling more than $16 million. Federal prosecutors said “unbridled greed” fueled the scheme.
