Former executive charged with conspiring to illegally distribute fentanyl

The founder of an Arizona-based pharmaceutical company has been charged with spearheading a “nationwide conspiracy” to illegally distribute fentanyl, a powerful prescription painkiller.

John N. Kapoor, 74, was charged with numerous felonies, including RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) conspiracy and wire fraud. Prosecutors allege Kapoor, the founder of Insys Pharmaceuticals, colluded with doctors and pharmacies to prescribe fentanyl that was not medically necessary and defraud insurance companies for payment.
