Lufkin doctor federally indicted for tax fraud

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A doctor who lives in Lufkin and works in the emergency room of a Nacogdoches hospital has been named in a federal indictment alleging tax fraud for three straight years.

David Anthony Mosig, 60, is accused of total incomes of $0 in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

The grand jury indicted Mosig on October 19. He appeared before U.S. District Judge Marcia Crone, who ruled in favor of Mosig in allowing him to be released.

Federal prosecutors filed a motion seeking for Mosig to be taken into custody until his trial, stating that he is a flight risk, because he did not voluntarily surrender during the week of October 31.

In the defense's response, his attorney, Charles McFarland, stated that Mosig was making arrangements for counsel and agreed to appear on November 8.

Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital CEO Tim Hayward confirmed that Mosig has working privileges in the emergency room. He said the hospital will determine his future employment.

"We'll have to see what the state board does," Hayward said. "But we'll also look into it ourselves."

Hayward said that when it came to his medical experience, Mosig is a "fine physician."
