PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Martin D. Weaver, M.D, 63, of Sickerville, New Jersey, and Erica LaBoy, 31, of Philadelphia, were charged today by Indictment, unsealed today, with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances outside the scope of professional practice; and Weaver was also charged with 29 counts of distributing controlled substances outside the scope of professional practice, announced Acting United States Attorney Louis D. Lappen.

According to the indictment, from at least December 2016 through October 2017, Weaver, with the assistance of La Boy, operated medical offices in Center City Philadelphia as a front for drug-dealing. The defendants sold prescriptions for oxycodone, a dangerous and addictive Schedule II controlled substance, to so-called patients, for $300 cash for the first prescription and $200 cash thereafter. Weaver did not examine the patients and often handed out prescriptions for oxycodone from the receptionist desk without providing any medical care.

If convicted, the defendants face significant terms of incarceration, as well as up to a lifetime of supervised release, and substantial fines and special assessments.

The case was investigated by the FBI, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Amanda R. Reinitz and M. Beth Leahy.
