Two doctors in Florida have been officially charged with racketeering. Pain clinics that the two were a part of in Orange County, Florida were raided last summer after drug enforcement agents confirmed what they believed to be pill mills. Pill mills are often a single link in the chain that leads to the sale of illegal drugs on the streets after doctors prescribe them in massive quantities.
Both physicians have been accused of racketeering and conspiracy to commit racketeering. Along with them are three Orlando, Florida men who were allegedly part of the clinics as well. They are a 65-year-old man and his two sons, ages 42 and 38. They have been charged with money laundering.
