Dublin, Ohio Lawyer Pleads Guilty In Pain Clinic Case
A lawyer has pleaded guilty to a single count of tax evasion after authorities decided not to retry him following a hung jury last year on more serious charges related to alleged Ohio pill mills.
The original charges against Steven Hillman of Dublin were part of a 2012 indictment against eight individuals that alleged dozens of customers a week would travel hundreds of miles to visit clinics in southern and central Ohio and pay $200 per visit for painkillers.
The indictment said prescriptions were written without meaningful physical exams and contributed to the deaths of at least two patients.
A jury deadlocked after Hillman’s trial in August 2013.
No sentencing date has been set for the 68-year-old Hillman. A message was left with his attorney.
