Greer doctor sentenced for selling prescription drugs to patients

COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Greer doctor was sentenced to over 7 years in prison for selling prescription painkillers to people who didn't need them, according to the U.S. States Attorney Bill Nettles.

Daniel H. Jebens, 50, pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and was sentenced to 87 months in prison on Thursday.

Nettles said a big break in the case came when Jebens wrote a prescription for 120 tablets of Roxicodone for an informant who was wired with video and audio recording devices.

Jebens and the informant then agreed that the informant would have the prescription filled, and then return the filled prescription to Jebens in exchange for cash, according to Nettles.

Jeben's said he would pay at least $10 per pill, according to Nettles.

The DEA then obtained a search warrant for Jeben's Greer office on Dec. 20, 2012 where he agreed to talk with law enforcement.

Nettles said Jebens admitted to prescribing controlled substances to patients who didn't need them, which he said accounted for 30 percent of his patients. 

Nettles said he charged $100 for giving a person a prescription for oxycodone.
