CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Closing arguments were held Wednesday in the trial of a medical doctor accused of selling drugs to patients outside of his medical practice.
Dr. Muhammed Samer Nasher-Alneam faces multiple charges related to selling pain medication, such as hydrocodone, oxycodone and methadone, from his Neurology & Pain Center, which operated in South Charleston and later Charleston from July 2013 through February 2015.
Nasher allegedly provided oxycodone to one individual who didn’t need it in September 2014 who later died. He did a similar act in February 2015 with oxycodone and oxymorphone, in which the person involved died.
Nasher is also accused of trying to hide his drug business by transferring $290,000 to a Turkish financial institution.
U.S. District Judge David Faber is set to give jury instructions Thursday morning with deliberations to follow.
