Kansas Doctor Commences To Defend Himself In The Overdose-Related Death TrialMay 28th, 2010 - 7:09 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
May 28, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Yesterday, a Kansas doctor, Stephen Schneider, commenced the process of defending himself in a court of law against grave accusations that he and his wife, Linda, were aware that 68 innocent individuals had been eliminated as a consequence of an overdose of medications recommended by him.
Dr. Stephen and his wife are at the receiving end of unpalatable indictments. They are charged with 34 counts of deceit, money laundering and illegitimately recommending controlled pills that are connected with the overdose deaths.
It has also been mentioned that Schneider continued to recommend the painkillers and other pills to the Medicare patients, some of whom were vending the pills instead of consuming them.
While he was testifying in court, Schneider fervently rejected the allegation of purposely signing prescriptions, which has been dubbed by some as a ‘pill mill’ scheme. Nonetheless, he has confessed that he was aware that some of the patients had died owing to overdoses at local emergency rooms.
Prosecutors have asserted that at least 4 deaths from prescription overdoses are directly associated with Schneider. Schneider declared that he kept a prescription notebook with pre-signed chits in his workplace. However, he did not even have inkling that it was being utilized for unconstitutional objectives by a subordinate of his.
If declared to be culpable, the husband and the wife might face a penalty of life imprisonment.
Schneider asserted that Linda was a nurse, who only looked after aspects associated with the staff and did not supervise medical care.
Schneider maintained that he was genuinely remorseful that so many blameless people had died. He would have certainly saved their lives if he had a chance. He would not have inscribed another prescription if he knew that it was going to injure their health irredeemably.
