Daughter Of Breakthrough Pain Therapy Center Owners Sentenced To Serve Eighteen Years In Prison

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – On Sept. 4, 2014, Wendi Henry, 45, of Blount County was sentenced to serve 216 months in prison by the Honorable Thomas A. Varlan, Chief U.S. District Judge.

After a jury trial in October 2013, Henry was convicted of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and other controlled substances in conjunction with her role in the operation of Breakthrough Pain Therapy Center in Maryville. Henry’s parents, Randy and Sandra Kincaid, the co-owners of Breakthrough, and her brother Dustin Morgan, were also convicted and previously sentenced.

These charges and subsequent convictions 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, where agents seized significant quantities of prescription narcotic pain pills, firearms, and nearly $700,000 in cash.

“Thanks to the cooperative efforts of the federal, state and local agencies who investigated this case, all of those involved received lengthy sentences for their criminal conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Bill Killian.

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