W.D. Va. U.S. attorneys compound the case against Dr. Knox
This report ("New charges pile up on pain doctor," 1/22/2004) in the Roanoke paper and this report ("Doctor faces new painkiller charges," 1/22/3004)in the Richmond paper describe how the U.S. Attorney's office for the W.D. Va. has added new charges in the latest indictment of Dr. Cecil Knox, the Roanoke doctor who was acquitted on 30-some charges and got a hung jury on the rest at the end of a lengthy trial last year. Dr. Knox is mainly charged with overbilling the government and overprescribing pain medication.
