Anesthesiologist Pleads Guilty To Unlawfully Distributing Oxycodone
A former hospital anesthesiologist pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to distribution of oxycodone, announced U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. HIEU TU LE, 40, of Snohomish, Washington, a medical doctor licensed in Washington State since 2004, operated medical clinics in Seattle and Everett, Washington. In his plea agreement, LE admits that between March 2012 and July 2013 he wrote oxycodone prescriptions for cash and obtained oxycodone that he distributed for cash, all without a legitimate medical need to do so.
