GULFPORT — A federal judge has ordered two Biloxi doctors to prison for prescription-drug violations.

U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. sentenced Dr. Richard Trieu April 1 to eight years in prison for prescribing narcotics outside the scope of professional practice. The judge gave Trieu’s wife, Dr. Victoria Van, a year in prison. The judge ordered the couple taken into custody. The parents of two toddlers lost their medical practice after their arrests in May 2008.

After prison, Van will have a year’s probation; Trieu will have five years’ probation.
