A doctor in Wisconsin has more than his medical license to lose after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
The 50-year-old doctor went before a court last week to plead guilty to two of the eight charges against him. The dermatologist was found to be in possession of significant amounts of cocaine, thus prompting prosecutors to charge him with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute as well as the distribution of cocaine.
When he appears before the judge again for sentencing, he could expect to receive a maximum sentence of $10 million fine and a life sentence. However, since he did agree to plead guilty to two of the charges, the prosecution is likely to ask the judge to give him a lighter sentence. When asked why he had decided to sell cocaine, the doctor said he needed to make extra money to take care of his alimony payments.
