Philadelphia Doctor's Office Served Pagans, Pills And Prostitutes
Veteran journalist and author George Anastasia (seen in the above photo) offers a piece at bigtrial.net on the Philadelphia doctor accused of selling drugs.
He was a doctor who federal authorities say turned his practice into an illegal drug distribution center for a group of outlaw bikers.
He charged $200 per visit but seldom bothered with a medical exam.
Instead, the feds say, he wrote thousands of prescriptions for oxycodone, methadone, valium and Percocet, drugs that quickly ended up on the streets. While most of his "patients" paid cash, several dancers who worked at area "gentleman's clubs" exchanged sex for scripts.
Over a two-year period, authorities say, Dr. William O'Brien 3d pocketed $1.8 million while his "patients," many of them members and associates of the Pagans, generated millions more in street sales. Some were pulling in as much as $10,000 a-week, according to court documents.
This week in U.S. District Court a jury will begin hearing testimony in the case against O'Brien; a case based on a two-year federal investigation that revolves around Pagans, pills and prostitutes.
