Doctor Charged in "Pill Mill" Case

April 27, 2012

Fort Myers, Florida - United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announces the arrest today of Dr. John Thaddeus Legowik (71, Orlando). Legowik is charged in a six-count indictment, with conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone and Xanax, as well as other controlled substances, with aiding and abetting such distribution and attempted dispensing of such controlled substances. If convicted, Legowik faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, for each count.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert P. Barclift.
