Pill Mill Owner Sandra Kincaid Sentenced To 39 Years In Prison

Thursday, August 21, 2014
Sandra Kincaid, 63, of Maryville, Tn., on Monday, was sentenced to serve 470 months in prison by the Honorable Thomas A. Varlan, Chief U.S. District Judge.
 
After a jury trial in October 2013, Ms. Kincaid was convicted of drug and money laundering offenses in conjunction with Breakthrough Pain Therapy Center in Maryville. Ms. Kincaid’s husband and co-owner of Breakthrough, Randy Kincaid, along with her son, Dustin Morgan, were also convicted and previously sentenced.
Ms. Kincaid’s daughter, Wendi Henry, was convicted and is in custody awaiting sentencing.
 
These charges and subsequent conviction of Ms. Kincaid and co-defendants resulted from a lengthy investigation by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, Fifth Judicial Drug Task Force, and Drug Enforcement Administration.  The pain clinic ceased operations when it was raided by federal and local law enforcement agents in December 2010, where agents seized significant quantities of prescription narcotic pain pills, firearms, and nearly $700,000 in cash.
 
“The Federal Sentencing Guidelines provide suggested ranges of incarceration for those who are found guilty of violating federal law, including the most serious offenders. Ms. Kincaid disbursed highly-addictive drugs to many people over a long period of time. Thanks to the intense and cooperative work of the federal, state and local agencies who investigated this case, she received a lengthy sentence for her criminal conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Bill Killian.
                       
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer Kolman and Frank M. Dale, Jr. represented the United States during the trial and sentencing.
