Ohio pill-mill owner gets 17-plus years in prison



Published: Tue, December 4, 2012 @ 5:18 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A judge has sentenced the co-owner of a southern Ohio pill mill to more than 17 years in prison.

Prosecutors pushing for the sentence argued that Nancy Sadler had so little regard for the law that she boosted painkiller sales when she needed a new car, gambled away clinic profits at casinos and burned clinic records when a search warrant was imminent.

Cincinnati federal Judge Sandra Beckwith sentenced Sadler to 171⁄2 years in prison today and recommended a 500-hour drug-treatment program.

Sadler was found guilty earlier this year for her role in the illegal distribution of painkiller prescriptions through Ohio Medical and Pain Management in Waverly.

Sadler’s husband, Lester, was sentenced Monday to 121⁄2 years in prison on similar charges.

The real tragedy is the patients who depended on this doctor to control their pain. They ll now be seen as tainted and have a lot of difficulty in finding another doctor to adequately treat their pain.
