Legal Defense Sheila Harris

Family, Friends and Community,

As most of you already know, Sheila Harris and Harris Therapy, Inc., have faced great adversity over the last couple of years.  In early 2017, The US Government charged Sheila with health care fraud and identify theft arising out of billings submitted to insurers under her name and under the names of other Harris Therapy Inc., health care providers.  Sheila and I decided to fight the charges with everything we had. 

Sheila and I have been together for nearly 30 wonderful years and married for 23. We have three beautiful children together. Sheila has been a practicing physical therapist for nearly as long as I have known her. Her passion for the practice and love for others gave her the courage to open her own practice in 2003. 

Through the course of the government’s investigation and trial we have received so many well-wishes from our friends, family, community and former Harris Therapy patients.  Your support means the world to our family and to Sheila more than anyone else.    

On May 10, 2018, Sheila was found guilty of the charges brought against her and she was immediately taken into custody.  Our legal fight is not over!  Sheila will be back in court for sentencing in September and we are currently weighing all of our post-trial options with our attorneys.  There is a high probability that Sheila could spend significant time in jail and we intend on doing everything possible to minimize the amount of time she is facing. The government has started forfeiture proceedings against us to take our home and livelihood and they have taken away our ability to pay for Sheila’s legal costs. 

Sheila and I, and our entire family humbly ask for support.  We have exhausted all of our resources.  Every dollar we receive will go directly to Sheila’s legal defense.  As a husband, and a father, I need to do all I can to bring Sheila home to her children.

Sincerely,

Jeff & Sheila
