TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A former central Kansas pharmacist has been convicted in what prosecutors are describing as an Internet "pill mill'' scheme.
Kansas Attorney General Steve Six announced in a news release Thursday that Rick Kloxin was found guilty after pleading no contest to 14 misdemeanor counts of violating Kansas pharmacy laws.
He was the lead pharmacist at Hogan's Pharmacy in Lyons, which
state officials shut down in 2008.
Kloxin lost his license in March and was fined $62,000.
The release said that Kloxin has agreed to cooperate fully with the attorney general's office in the prosecution of the owners of the pharmacy, Jolane and Mark Poindexter.
The preliminary hearing for the Poindexters began yesterday in Lyons.
