David Schornstein, a former city council member in Cambridge, has been charged with three counts of insurance fraud involving his chiropractic clinic.

Schornstein, according to investigators, billed more than $8,300 in fraudulent insurance claims. In some cases, investigators say Schornstein billed an insurer for massage services he never rendered.

Schornstein admits errors and a lapse in oversight but says he never intentionally engaged in fraud.

Prior to resigning from the Cambridge City Council last year, Schornstein's chiropractor license was suspended in connection with a prescription pain medicine addiction.

Schornstein tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS he receives treatment and has been sober for years.
