NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey doctor is headed to prison for accepting cash kickbacks for diagnostic testing referrals and failing to file tax returns on $1 million of income over a three-year period.

Federal prosecutors say Yash Khanna, a 73-year-old Livingston resident who operated a family medicine practice in East Orange, received a nine-month sentence on Tuesday. He also will have to serve one month of house arrest and three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

He also was fined $30,000 and ordered to forfeit $10,400.

Khanna pleaded guilty in March 2014 to conspiracy and other counts.

Prosecutors say Khanna got money from Orange Community MRI in exchange for referring patients there for testing.
