Michigan Doctor Sentenced to Prison for His Role in Scheme to Unlawfully Distribute Opioids

A Detroit-area doctor was sentenced to 60 months in prison today for his role in a scheme to unlawfully distribute more than 23,000 pills of oxycodone.

Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider of the Eastern District of Michigan, Special Agent in Charge Timothy R. Slater of the FBI’s Detroit Division, Special Agent in Charge Timothy J. Plancon of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)’s Detroit Division and Special Agent in Charge Lamont Pugh III of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General’s (HHS-OIG) Chicago Regional Office made the announcement.

Alex Kafi, M.D., 70, of West Bloomfield, Michigan, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Victoria A. Roberts of the Eastern District of Michigan.  Kafi pleaded guilty in August 2018 to one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

“Betraying his duties as a licensed physician, Alex Kafi, accepted cash in exchange for writing medically unnecessary prescriptions for addictive opioids as part of a scheme that flooded Michigan with thousands of doses of oxycodone,” said Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski.  “Holding corrupt doctors accountable is critical to our ongoing efforts to combat the opioid epidemic nationwide and the Department of Justice will continue to aggressively pursue medical professionals like Alex Kafi.”

“Today’s opioid epidemic is fueled, in part, by the greed of certain doctors who knowingly prescribe legitimate pain medications to individuals for no legitimate medical purpose,” said U.S. Attorney Schneider.  “Dr. Kafi’s action contributed to Michigan’s opioid crisis for the sole purpose of lining his pockets.  We will continue to use every means available to investigate and prosecute these cases.”

“We are committed to investigating medical professionals who use their position to illegally distribute opioids like common drug dealers,” said Special Agent in Charge Slater.  “The FBI is unwaveringly committed to working alongside our Strike Force Partners to fight the opioid epidemic and to ensure the deadly practice of over-prescribing highly addictive drugs does not continue unchecked.”

“Today’s sentencing is a reminder of DEA’s determination to bring medical professionals who betray the trust of their community to justice,” said Special Agent in Charge Plancon.  “The DEA, through regulation and enforcement, will continue to partner with other law enforcement agencies to identify, investigate, and prosecute licensed Physicians, like Dr. Kafi, who use their medical profession and position to conceal the unlawful diversion and distribution of prescription drugs.”

“Ensuring the appropriate prescribing of opioid medications is essential to protect the health and safety of patients,” said Special Agent in Charge Pugh III.  “When physicians act recklessly and in furtherance of their own greed, they only exacerbate the opioid epidemic.  The OIG has made combatting the opioid crisis a top enforcement priority and we will continue working with our law enforcement partners to investigate and hold accountable those who act illegally and put patients’ health and safety at risk.”

As part of his guilty plea, Kafi admitted that from 2013 through May 2017, he engaged in a scheme in which he wrote medically unnecessary prescriptions for oxycodone in exchange for cash.  Kafi wrote these fraudulent prescriptions often without ever meeting or communicating with the patient.  Instead, Kafi conspired with patient recruiters who provided him with lists of patients, along with $300 per prescription of oxycodone, he admitted.  Kafi admitted the scheme involved approximately 693,000 mg of oxycodone.  He agreed to forfeit $617,208.00, representing proceeds of his criminal activity.

Kafi’s co-defendant Danielle Smith was sentenced by Judge Roberts to serve 32 months in prison on Feb. 7.  Additional co-defendant Cheryl Ozoh awaits sentencing.  Smith and Ozoh each also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

The FBI, DEA and HHS-OIG investigated the case.  Trial Attorney Steven Scott of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section is prosecuting the case.

 The Fraud Section leads the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, which is part of a joint initiative between the Department of Justice and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to focus their efforts to prevent and deter fraud and enforce current anti-fraud laws around the country.  Since its inception in March 2007, the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, which maintains 14 strike forces operating in 23 districts, has charged nearly 4,000 defendants who have collectively billed the Medicare program for more than $14 billion.  In addition, the HHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, working in conjunction with the HHS-OIG, are taking steps to increase accountability and decrease the presence of fraudulent providers.

美国一次性查获15吨可卡因 值10亿可毒死百万人

据英国卫报报道,美国联邦执法官员6月18日在宾夕法尼亚州费城港口的一艘船上一次性查获了16.5吨(约合15公吨)可卡因,价值逾10亿美元。美国官方称这是美国历史上规模最大的缉毒行动之一。


美国费城检察官办公室18日下午公布了这一大规模缉毒行动的细节,执法人员在帕克大街海运码头进行搜查,从一艘大船上的8个集装箱里查获了约15公吨的可卡因。该船上的船员已被逮捕,将受到联邦起诉。目前调查还在进行中。

电视画面显示,这艘被查获的船只名为MSC Gayane,悬挂西非国家利比里亚的国旗航行,17日凌晨5时过后抵达费城。据了解,MSC是跨国公司,总部位于欧洲,拥有54艘货船,在美国多个城市经营业务。

当局表示,这是宾夕法尼亚州东区历史上最大的一次毒品缴获行动。一公斤可卡因在美国的售价大约为28000美元,因此这次缴获的可卡因价值超过4.19亿美元。而联邦检察官办公室估计,这些可卡因的黑市价格超过10亿美元。

美国检察官威廉·麦克斯韦恩在推特上说:“如此大量的可卡因足以杀死数百万人,数百万人。”

此次缉毒行动是美国东海岸一系列大规模缉毒行动中的最新一起。在费城3月份的一次缉毒行动中,缉毒犬嗅出了538公斤可卡因,价值约3800万美元,在当时是费城20多年来查获的最大一批可卡因。5月份,又查获了450公斤可卡因。

今年2月,海关人员则在纽约和新泽西的港口查获了1451公斤,市值估计为7700万美元。那是涉事港口自1994年以来查获的最大量的一批毒品。
