ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - An Orange County doctor could have spent the rest of his life in prison for trafficking pain medicine. Instead, he made a deal that allows him to continue to treat patients and write prescriptions.
"A hundred oxycodone, a hundred Xanax bars and a hundred soma, which is a muscle relaxer," said Alan League.
Mosai's attorney explained to WFTV's Nancy Alvarez how he defended his client against drug trafficking charges that could've sent the doctor to prison for life.
"This was not a high volume pill mill operation where people were lurking in parking lots," said attorney Robert Leventhal.
Leventhal said Mosai was targeted by investigators after a former patient was caught selling drugs she stole from another of Mosai's patients. Leventhal says his client is only guilty of believing people who told him they were in serious pain.
"He's very gentle, very quiet," said Leventhal. "He's not suspicious enough. He is now."
"The doctor enabled him to have the quantity of pills he had. We have to go on without our son. Our grandchildren have to go on without their dad," said Sue Leventhal.
The current plea deal calls for Mosai to remain on probation for 20 years, and it requires him to keep a log of the prescriptions he writes. The Department of Health will also keep him on probation with them for the next three years.
