( Cincinnati, OH ) - A Cincinnati doctor was sentenced Wednesday to 60 months behind bars after being convicted of illegally distributing painkillers.
Alan Arnold Godofsky, 61, was prescribing oxycodone pills at the Kentucky Bariatric and Pain Management Clinic in Georgetown, according to trial testimony. Godofsky conducted minimal exams and spent a small amount of time with patients before prescribing pills.
According to testimony, Godofsky prescribed an excess of 500,000 pills during his time at the clinic. He worked there from March 2011 to January 2012.
Godofsky was found guilty of his charges in October 2017.
Federal law states Godofsky only has to serve 85 percent of his sentence. After that he will be on probation for three years.
