Ex-doctor, accomplice to be sentenced for illegal prescriptions
Published: January 4,2012
STONE COUNTY — A former south Mississippi doctor and another man are scheduled for sentencing this week for selling pain pills and anxiety medicine to people without a legitimate medical exam.
Authorities say Je Song, a former Stone County surgeon, wrote prescriptions that ended up in the hands of people he never examined, and in some cases people he never even met. Four people in the case have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from just over two years to more than eight years.
Song and Oliver Shoemaker Jr., who was described in court records as a middle man in the scheme, are both scheduled for sentencing Friday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport. Song was practicing in Saucier before his arrest.
The remaining defendant, Kevin Anderson, is scheduled for sentencing Feb. 16.
