CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A federal prosecutor says a former West Virginia physician has been sentenced to four years in prison for prescribing drugs in exchange for sexual favors.
U.S. Attorney Bill Powell says 69-year-old Eugenio Menez of Fairmont was sentenced Monday and ordered to pay a $25,000 fine.
Powell’s office says Menez admitted illegally distributing oxycodone in September 2015 in Marion County.
The prosecutor’s office says Menez distributed controlled substances outside the course of professional medical practice by writing prescriptions for several female patients in exchange for sexual favors.
Menez surrendered his medical license and his DEA registration, which permitted him to write prescriptions.
