NORWALK - A Bridgeport attorney could face up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to insurance fraud.

State prosecutors say Joseph Haddad, of Orange, conspired with health care providers to exaggerate the injuries of his clients and the cost of their care.

They say the scheme cost more than 10 insurance carriers nearly $2.5 million.

Haddad pleaded guilty to two different counts, each with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. He will be sentenced in March.
