It's nothing until the scumsuckers find out he was a doctor, assume he still has money, and then try to put the squeeze on him.
I dunno, I couldn't do 10yrs because of my health issues, and I'm young. I'd hate to know what a 69yo goes though.
Regardless of what meds he wrote, he's still a doctor, and this is a disgrace. If there was real justice in this land, Staker would be in there with him.

I don't know this Adkins guy, but from the news stories I have read, I don't think he is a doctor. I believe I read that he used to be a prison guard. The doctor he employed is dead, probably a suicide. Click the link above to the story to read about him.

Wonder if the old man will actually have to do his 10 years? They got one more that still needs to go to court with this.

He ain't a doctor! He owned the pill mill and yes he was a prison guard at SOCF for years.

He will probably meet some inmates that he use to lock up when he gets to the big house. He should hope that none has an axe to grind... No pun intended. LOL

I hope each and every person that worked at that pill mill get exactly what they deserve! I know most of them and they're drug addicts also. Quit making this stuff available to the other addicts. Some of us have family members that are truly suffering and want all these people locked away where they can't do any more harm.

Wonder why Margy Temponares only lost her license. She was billed as one of the largest volume mills in the US & connected to multiple deaths but no arrest.

i went there (not proud, but i did),but i do know NONE of these chicks are registered ANYTHING, i asked. we called em' pill whores *friends of mine*

all they did was collect $ check blood pressure and hand out scripts and pills. one was busted for possession and had other pill & drug charges that should land her some time but she's now bragging that she's not going to jail or getting a hard sentence because she rolled on the old adkins dude

I'm not sure Temponares is out of the clear yet. The attorney general that was hired out of Columbus to handle these pill mill cases is about to wrap up the case with greater medial this month. I would guess after all the workers from greater medical get prosecuted then they will move on to the next pill mill to prosecute!!

That was an epic fail by Donini. Look into it. Can't prove a crime if you don'c collect evidence. Also, why was she only in the last few who got shut down? If she was the biggest pusher, you would think she would have been first.

Does that sound right to you? Or is this just another example of Donini's selective prosecution in Scioto County?

You're right it was an epic fail, Donini sucks and I hope he loses reelection this year.

My question about Temponeras is if they didn't come down on her first because there is no one who died under her care; she also had tv stations to come into her office and follow the process, which appeared totally legit.
