Doctor Arrested at His Office for Drug Crimes

Broward County Prescription Drug FraudGetting involved in the illegal drug game doesn’t pay for anyone, even the most elite professionals. Even looking as if one is involved in it can affect that person’s practice and livelihood. A doctor in Broward County is going to need a Broward County Prescription drug fraud lawyer to help get him out of the mess that he and his alleged accomplices have been accused of getting involved in.

Police and detectives investigated the practices of a Pompano Beach doctor and found evidence that led them to believe that he was providing patients with illegal substances without conducting proper examinations on them. Some of the drugs that this doctor has been accused of dispersing are drugs such as morphine, oxycodone and amphetamine. Three other people were accused of conspiring to dispense the drugs. The physician who was arrested for the crime was arrested while he was at his practice. He is over 80 years of age. The other assailants who were accused of their involvement were mature in their years, as well. The youngest person was 36.

The main assailant received a charge for 10 counts of conspiring to dispense controlled dangerous substances unlawfully. Each individual charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years, and only being convicted of one charge could leave this specialist behind bars for the rest of his natural life. The doctor will need the assistance of a lawyer who specifically handles Broward County prescription drug fraud. He can’t just hire any lawyer, either. He will need an experienced lawyer who has seen success in similar cases. He’ll need to have an attorney who knows how to get out of such a rough situation.
