Alabama doctor, husband sentenced for opioid distribution

 

An Alabama doctor will serve a 52-month sentence in federal prison for providing opioids to people without medical purpose.

Her husband, who managed her practice, will also serve time for 30 months.

The couple pleaded guilty in December after being arrested in 2019. They admitted to providing dangerous doses of hydrocodone to patients who were not examined by a medical professional and when the doctor was not present.
