Dr. Margaret Temponeras, 55, owner of Unique Pain Management in Wheelersburg, Ohio, was sentenced to 84 months in prison.
Along with her father, John Temponeras, they charged patients $200 per visit. They saw an average of 20 patients per day. This netted the pair, $4,000 per day in CASH.
The patients were referred to Raymond Fankell, who owned Prime Pharmacy, to fill those prescriptions.
Many other local pharmacies refused to fill prescriptions written by Temponeras. This led them to open their own pharmacy.
It is reported, that Temponeras offered volunteer services at Hillview Retirement Center while awaiting sentencing.
Federal Courts move slower than local courts and many local citizens were eagerly awaiting the outcome of the “Temponeras Situation”.
It is unknown when she is scheduled to report for incarceration to begin her sentence.
