Q&A with Bowling Green Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Nick Oberheiden, Ph.D.
Q: If I prescribe or dispense opioid medications, do I need to be concerned about a federal investigation?
Potentially, yes. Combatting opioid fraud and abuse is a top federal law enforcement priority. DEA Diversion Investigators are actively working with federal prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Kentucky to target health care providers in Bowling Green and the surrounding areas. If federal authorities find evidence to suggest that your opioid prescription practices are irregular when compared to other local providers, this alone can be enough to trigger an investigation.
Q: What are my risks if I am being targeted in a federal investigation?
Most federal crimes are felony offenses. This means that they carry the potential for substantial fines and long-term imprisonment. Licensed professionals can also face license suspension or revocation, and health care providers can face loss of DEA registration, loss of Medicare eligibility, loss of hospital and assignment privileges, and other severe consequences. In addition to pursuing charges for substantive offenses such as health care fraud and tax fraud, federal prosecutors routinely bring charges for conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering as well. These charges can potentially add decades onto a convicted defendant’s sentence.
Q: How can a criminal defense lawyer help during my federal investigation?
If you are under investigation, 100% of your efforts should be devoted to resolving the investigation without being criminally charged. A federal criminal defense lawyer can help by challenging the government’s evidence, assumptions, and investigatory practices; presenting exculpatory evidence; limiting your disclosure obligations and representing you in communications with federal agents; and pursuing all available opportunities to end the investigation.
