CASE ENTRY

United States v. Evans

Employees at Houston dental office note that doctor’s office in same building serves huge numbers of out-of-state patients, many of them unkempt, who loiter, bathe in bathroom sinks, and seem impaired. The dental employees snoop through the doctor’s trash and, finding suspicious notes about painkiller prescriptions, alert the authorities. Fifth Circuit: There is sufficient evidence he was running a pill mill, so we won’t disturb the jury’s verdict.
