“Rock Doctor” From Tennessee Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison For Prescribing Opiates For Sex And Money

One of the sixty individuals who were accused in 2019 for their alleged roles in illegally prescribing and distributing pills containing opioids and other narcotics was Effrey W. Young Jr., who works in the city of Jackson in the state of Tennessee. Young Jr. is one of the individuals who was accused of these activities. The claims were brought against them since it is believed that they were involved in the behavior that was considered illegal.

The prosecution asserts that Young, who is 49 years old, was one of the 53 medical practitioners who were participating in the gang that is accused of selling approximately 350,000 prescriptions and 32 million pills. Young is one of the individuals who was included in the gang. It is also alleged that the gang was responsible for the distribution of about 32 million pills. The conviction for him was handed down in Memphis on Monday, following the fact that he had been found guilty the year before. It was decided that he should be convicted.

According to the authorities from the federal government, he illegally prescribed more than one hundred thousand pills of hydrocodone, oxycodone, and fentanyl from his clinic in Jackson. These medications were distributed to patients. As one of the patients who had treatment with these medications, there was a pregnant woman who was one of the patients. Because the medications were extremely addictive, there was a strong risk that they would be abused. This was a serious possibility.

He made an effort to market a reality TV pilot and a podcast for a “rock documentary” while at the same time he was selling prescription medications and opiates for the purpose of sex and money. He did this in an attempt to make money. The prosecution claims that he utilized the motto “Work hard, play harder” to sell his profession, and that his clinic was well-known for its inclination to have a party atmosphere. In addition, the prosecution claims that he was a party animal.

Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri, who is in charge of the criminal division of the United States Department of Justice, stated that “the self-proclaimed ‘rock doc’ abused the power of the prescription pad to supply his small community with hundreds of thousands of doses of highly addictive prescription opioids in order to obtain money, notoriety, and sexual favors.” This statement was made in reference to the fact that the individual sought to obtain sexual favors, notoriety, and financial gain. During the meeting, Argentieri made a statement. Furthermore, Argentieri asserts that the actions that he performed “put his patients and the community as a whole in danger.”
