Doctor And Clinic Owner Sentenced For Drug Trafficking And Money Laundering Conspiracies
NEW ORLEANS - Drug Enforcement (DEA) Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown and U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that Joseph J. Mogan, III, M.D., age 48, formerly of New Orleans, and Tiffany Miller, age 43, of Metairie, were sentenced yesterday for conspiring to dispense prescription drugs illegally through “pill mill” clinics operated as Omni Pain Management in Metairie, Louisiana, and Omni Pain Management Plus in Slidell, Louisiana, and related money laundering charges.
U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan sentenced Mogan and Miller each to a term of imprisonment of 97 months, a term of supervised release of three years, a $200 special assessment, and asset forfeiture of criminal proceeds and property.
According to court documents, Mogan and Miller owned and operated the two clinics and conspired to prescribe narcotics and other controlled substances without a legitimate medical purpose and outside the bounds of professional medical practice to drug seekers and drug abusers.
U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration in investigating this matter. First Assistant United States Attorney Richard W. Westling and Assistant United States Attorneys Harry “Bill” McSherry and Michael B. Redmann were in charge of the prosecution.
