Pill Mill Owner Sentenced To 69 Years In Prison

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Randy Kincaid, 58, of Maryville, Tenn., was sentenced to serve 830 months in prison by the Honorable Thomas A. Varlan, Chief U.S. District Judge. The sentence was the result of a conviction at trial in October 2013 to a federal indictment charging him with drug, firearm, money laundering and structuring offenses in conjunction with Breakthrough Pain Therapy Center in Maryville. Kincaid’s wife and co-owner of Breakthrough, Sandee Kincaid, along with family members Wendi Henry and Dustin Morgan were also convicted and are presently in custody and awaiting sentencing.

The indictment and subsequent conviction of Kincaid and his co-defendants resulted from a lengthy investigation by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, Fifth Judicial Drug Task Force, and Drug Enforcement Administration. The pain clinic ceased operations when it was raided by federal and local law enforcement agents in December 2010. On that same date, agents seized significant quantities of prescription narcotic pain pills, firearms, and nearly $700,000 in cash.

U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said, “The cooperation and diligence of these local, state and federal agencies resulted in a severe sentence for this individual who was distributing huge amounts of addictive pills. This sentence is a deterrent for those considering the illegal distribution of prescription pills.”

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer Kolman and Frank M. Dale, Jr. represented the United States during the trial and sentencing.
