Pharmacist Sentenced For Forging And Dispensing Fraudulent Prescriptions
TAMPA, FL. - Drug Enforcement (DEA) Miami Field Division Special Agent in Charge Mark R. Trouville and United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announce today that United States District Judge Virginia Covington sentenced Adam Nagy, age 30, formerly of St. Petersburg, to 33 months in federal prison for conspiring to act outside the scope of his professional pharmacy practice by dispensing and distributing quantities of oxycodone, a Schedule II controlled substance. Nagy pled guilty to the charges on October 6, 2010.
According to the plea agreement, from June 2008 through October 2008, Nagy was working as a pharmacist at CVS Pharmacy in St. Petersburg, Florida. During that time, Nagy knowingly filled several fraudulent prescriptions for oxycodone and knowingly forged false prescriptions to obtain and dispense oxycodone.
This case was investigated by DEA and the St. Petersburg Police Department.
