BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. — The U.S. Attorney in northern West Virginia announced Friday six people have been indicted in connection with the alleged illegal prescription of painkillers by a Bridgeport doctor.
U.S. Attorney Bill Ihlenfeld said Fairmont residents Lois Ann Crites, 49, Andrea Shepard, 23, D.J. Quirk, 29, Deborah Tate, 56, and Nino Mancino, 42, conspired with Dr. Edita Milan to possess and distribute the painkillers. The grand jury also indicted David Rokisky, 46, of Tampa, Fla., in connection with the case.
Dr. Milan is scheduled to go on trial Jan. 14, 2014 on charges of prescribing painkillers like hydrocodone for non-legitimate medical purposes.
