LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Prosecutors say the former owners of an eastern Kentucky pain clinic have been sentenced to federal prison terms for illegally dispensing more than 50,000 pills.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1zHj9aO ), 51-year-old Tammy Cantrell, of Oil Springs, and 52-year-old Shelby Lackey, of Williamsport, owned and operated Care More Pain Management LLC in Johnson County.
According to their plea agreements, the pair conspired with two doctors to sell prescription pain pills to people without a legitimate medical purpose from 2008 to 2012.
Prosecutors said Friday that U.S. District Judge Amul Thapar sentenced Cantrell to nine years in prison and Lackey to eight years and one month in prison.
Cantrell, Lackey and a third defendant have forfeited $1.1 million as proceeds from the conspiracy.
