In the city of Indiana, Pennsylvania, a superior court has decided that a local physician may change his original “guilty” pleas of precription medication fraud, to “not guilty.”

The ruling by Judge William Martin means that Doctor Tahir Mir, age 62, will now stand trial.

The doctor, who operated a medical facility called the Indiana Walk-In Clinic, located about 50 miles north of Pittsburgh, had previously pleaded guilty in 2011 to “bad faith” prescription practices, Conspiracy and Medicaid Fraud.

According to State Attorney General Linda Kelly, Mir wrote “numerous”prescriptions for narcotics for an adult female patient in return for sex, while knowing that she was a serious drug abuser.

Investigators discovered that their sexual encounters took place in an apartment above the clinic.

State investigators reported that Mir was jailed on $500,000 bond, after he fought with arresting officers entering the apartment above his medical office. Agents said it appeared at the time Mir was planning his routine sexual rendezvous that evening and was carrying narcotics for the unnamed woman at the time the raid occurred.

The doctor’s trial is scheduled for early October, 2013.

Case Update: Doctor Tahir Usman Mir, 62, has been sentenced to serve 7-15 years in  state prison by Judge William Martin, following his conviction in June by a jury for trading prescription painkillers for sexual favors from women.

Our Observations:

A little research reveals that law enforcement had been investigating Mir for two years prior to his arrest. They had received a series of complaints from Gateway HealthUPMC for You and numerous local pharmacies regarding his apparent excessive narcotic prescriptions.

We believe it is of some importance to note that this man with a funny name is only one of 52 physicians who found themselves in deep legal doo-doo in the last seven days.

52. That’s 10 doctors everyday. EVERY DAY.

Next week there will be 50 more.

In keeping with his status as yet another Third World Assassin, Mir, MD immigrated to the United States from Pakistan. He graduated from King Edward Medical University, Lahore in 1976.
