Steven Moos

Fugitive Status sentenced
Charges False Claims and Statements

Investigation Details

On April 19, 2011, in the United States District Court, District of Oregon, Moos pleaded guilty to a single count of the Indictment (Title 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 2 - False Claims and Statements). Moos was sentenced to serve 4 months of home detention, 3 years of probation, and 200 hours of volunteer community service.

Steven Moos is charged with drug possession, fraudulent internet marketing, and child endangerment.

Formerly a general practice physician in Oregon, Moos lost his medical license after he repeatedly prescribed numerous prescription drugs over the Internet, despite warnings from the State medical authorities to stop such practices.

According to the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners, Moos prescribed drugs and refilled prescriptions without physically examining patients or obtaining health record information from them or their primary care providers.

After his medical license was revoked, Moos allegedly continued to practice medicine and prescribe drugs and made false statements on a Drug Enforcement Administration registration renewal application to conceal the fact that he no longer had a medical license to prescribe drugs, according to the indictment.

The Federal indictment stated that in the summer of 2002, Moos allegedly ordered misbranded drugs (including human growth hormone) from China. The drugs did not have adequate directions for use or warnings and other required information.
