Lee's Summit Woman Sentenced for Oxycodone Conspiracy

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Lee’s Summit, Mo., woman was sentenced in federal court today for her role in a conspiracy that used hundreds of fraudulent prescriptions to obtain tens of thousands of oxycodone pills.

 

Amy M. Alley, 31, of Lee’s Summit, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Howard F. Sachs to seven years in federal prison without parole.

 

On May 18, 2016, Alley pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute oxycodone that began in January 2010 and lasted until she was indicted on July 28, 2015.

 

According to court documents, Alley was involved in a large scale, wide ranging drug conspiracy to obtain oxycodone by way of fraud, then use or sell those fraudulently-obtained pills to further support their drug habits. Conspirators used stolen prescription pads, stolen identifications and fraudulently created prescriptions to obtain the oxycodone from area pharmacies. A number of fraud “script” ledgers were recovered in this case that showed Alley and her co-conspirators had fraudulently passed and attempted to pass hundreds of fraud prescriptions and obtained approximately 30,155 pills before their arrests.

 

Alley’s twin sister and co-defendant Amanda F. Alley, 31, of Lee’s Summit, pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy on June 3, 2016, and awaits sentencing. Co-defendant Heather J. Martinez, 28, of Kansas City, Mo., pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to seven years in federal prison without parole.

 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Marquez. It was investigated by the Independence, Mo., Police Department.
