CA Affirms Up To 7-Year Imprisonment Sentence to Celebrity Doctor Joel Mendez

JOEL MENDEZ – The Court of Appeals (CA) affirmed the up to 7-year imprisonment sentence of a court to the celebrity doctor.

Dr. Mendez is faced with accusations of not paying the contribution of his employees to the Social Security System or more commonly known as SSS.
