A California woman has been sentenced to five years of probation and community service for distributing adulterated cancer drugs to U.S. physicians, including one in Town and Country. Sandra Behe admitted to shipping the prescription medications from foreign countries that were not kept at proper temperatures, making them unsafe to give to patients. Her employer at the time and co-defendent, James Newcomb, will be sentenced July 6 on charges related to the same crimes. The Missouri doctor, Dr. Abid Nisar, paid over $1 million to the U.S. to resolve alleged false Medicaid claims regarding misbranded cancer drugs and has been barred from participating in federal health care programs for seven years.
