I hope they lock him up for good! He really should get the firing squad for all the lives he's ruined. My sister would still be alive today if she had not met Richard Messineo when he was a pharmacist for Costco years ago. He has been praying on women for year's!!!! If you know this scumbag please post a note on here.

I guess my earlier post wasnt nice very nice, because they didnt post it. ill have to phrase it a little nicer this time. Richard took my sister away from us. she was a loving and caring person with a wonderful life ahead of her until she met Richard. I hope the Bug eyed A@# hole loves prison and that (Bubba) takes good care of him!

so, you conflate owning guns with being a drug dealer because some drug dealers protect themselves with guns therefore if you own guns you are a drug dealer?

Hey Mike, wow you know these people pretty good. Hopefully some people with not see the heartache of a loved one go down because of drugs. I lost alot because a partner of mine got into it big time.

be careful I hope you let some officials ( law) understand your concerns.

Life in prison!!! Can't you kill someone and get less jail time? Obviously he deserves to loose his license and do some jail time, but from what I've read they only have one witness that will testify against him that said he gave them drugs. Is a life in prision really appropriate for this crime???

prison yes. for life no. anyone who takes drugs and winds up dead is their own fault not the dealers'. if it weren't rich messineo it would have been another dealer. point the blame back on the person was ignorant enough to overdose. rich messineo was an idiot for sure. he ruined his life by being a plain and simple greedy, greedy person!

Dopl, DEA, and local police are impotent at best! This douche bag has been trading drugs for sex for 10+ years, not to mention all the techs that he bought boob jobs for with drug money. And for every pharmacist who has had the misfortune to work with him, we watched him laugh off the law while DOPL did nothing, they could have pulled him out of a pharmacy years ago but instead allowed him to ruin more lives, pathetic.

I knew your sister Lorri, I believe Dr. Rappley was supplying your sister with lortabs with prescriptions! Is this not correct?

You guys have no idea what actually occurred here. Might I remind you "judge not lest ye be judged." This is a good man who was hung out to dry because the DEA had spent too much money trying to catch a drug "kingpin" and actually found a decent law-abiding citizen.
