Maryland man pleads guilty to prescription drug diversion

A 64-year-old Owings Mills pharmacist has purportedly confessed to investigators that he filled numerous fake prescriptions for at least three women in exchange for sexual favors and sexually explicit imagery. The man pleaded guilty in federal court on Aug. 24 to charges of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and distribution of oxycodone.

According to information released by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Maryland, the pharmacist made arrangements with the women to engage in sex acts or provide him with sexually explicit images of themselves at the Towson pharmacy where he was employed. In exchange for the sexual favors, he allegedly agreed to provide the women with oxycodone by filling fraudulent prescriptions for them. As part of ongoing arrangements, the pharmacist allegedly provided the women with an estimated 20,500 pills containing 15 milligrams of oxycodone per pill.

The drug charges against him could potentially result in a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison for each guilty plea. He is scheduled to be sentenced later this year.

Both police investigators and government prosecutors take drug offenses involving prescription drug diversion and distribution very seriously. Individuals facing drug charges could suffer serious consequences if they are found guilty or make a plea deal with the prosecutors. However, an attorney may be able to help an alleged offender face prescription drug charges by negotiating a deal with prosecutors to reduce the charges or potentially arranging for the accused to be admitted into a drug diversion program in lieu of a long prison sentence.
