Co-Owners of Miami Pain Management Clinic Plead Guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute Medically Unnecessary Opioid Prescriptions

 

The husband and wife co-owners of a Miami pain management clinic and a patient recruiter pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to distribute controlled substances for their participation in a scheme to unlawfully distribute thousands of pills of oxycodone.

Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; U.S. Attorney Benjamin G. Greenberg for the Southern District of Florida; Special Agent in Charge Robert Lasky of the FBI’s Miami Field Office; Special Agent in Charge Shimon R. Richmond of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG); Special Agent in Charge Brian Swain of the U.S. Secret Service (USSS), and Special Agent in Charge Adolphus P. Wright of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Miami Field Division made the announcement.

“The so-called ‘pain clinic’ owned by David Bosch and Tania Sanchez traded oxycodone prescriptions for cash, resulting in bogus, medically unnecessary prescriptions for at least 7,500 tablets of oxycodone,” said Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski.  “Pill mills like this must be shut down.  The Department of Justice is committed to reducing the staggering number of opioid overdoses in this country, and holding accountable all responsible parties, from owners of illegal clinics to patient recruiters, for their roles in this deadly scourge.”

David Bosch, 46, and Tania Sanchez, 47, of Hialeah, Florida, and Odalys Abreu, 45, of Miami, Florida, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances before U.S. Magistrate Judge John O’Sullivan of the Southern District of Florida.  Sentencing has been scheduled for Nov. 7 before U.S. District Judge Joan A. Lenard of the Southern District of Florida.  Ledif Acanda Machado, 39, who was charged in this conspiracy, remains a fugitive. Read more
