Pharmacist Gets 30 Yrs For Illegally Selling Drugs

(LEXINGTON, KY) - Sentenced Friday, 41-year-old Lonnie Hubbard was convicted in February on more than 70 counts, including money laundering and illegal dispensing of oxycodone, hydrocodone and pseudoephedrine.

Hubbard operated Rx Discount of Berea, and was indicted in 2015 on allegations of distributing pseudophedrine to others for the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Prosecutors say he sold to addicts and drug traffickers in his home state of Kentucky, while others visited his pain clinics in four other states, including Ohio, to get illegitimate prescriptions.

Hubbard would charge between $600 and $1,000 to fill the prescriptions.
