A Los Angeles physician who scribbled out more than 1,000 illegal narcotic prescriptions has changed his “Not Guilty” plea to “Guilty.”
Doctor James William Eisenberg, age 72, admitted to a single count of narcotic distribution.
Federal investigators discovered that Eisenberg had routinely written hundreds of prescriptions for no reason other to gain wealth. He sold the drugs out of so-called clinics, such as Pacific Support Services in West Hollywood. He also issued “medical marijuana” recommendations, according to Drug Enforcement reports.
As far back as December 2011, Eisenberg was referred to by a federal judge as a “drug dealer” and had his prescription registration permit suspended. It was permanently revoked in July 2012.
Eisenberg, who lives in Venice, was named in a Drug Enforcement Administration indictment in May, charging him with four counts of using a revoked registration number and three counts of distribution of hydrocodone.
According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Barron, Eisenberg faces up a 30-month prison term at sentencing hearing in December.
This superannuated drug-pushing MD was sent to L.A. County Jail for 6 months in April, 2014. In other words, he got a swat on his adult diaper for his crimes.
