JUN 16, BOISE, Idaho – Michael Minas, residing in Boise, Idaho, had to appear in federal court in Boise on June 13, 2014, to address an indictment charging him with 17 counts of distributing/handing over of controlled substances.
Minas had been arrested outside of his medical practice in Eagle on June 12, 2014. Trial was scheduled to take place before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge on August 12, 2014, at the federal courthouse in Boise.
As per the indictment charges, Minas distributed OxyContin 80 mg and Oxycodone 30 mg, both of which are Schedule II controlled substances, and diazepam, which is a Schedule IV controlled substance, outside the allowed limits of professional practice and for a legitimate medical purpose.
The court released Minas until trial takes place but he has been ordered to follow numerous specific conditions while on release. Till the trial is pending, Minas is prohibited from writing prescriptions and is not allowed to engage in the practice of medicine. He can only serve to transfer patient records so that patients may see other healthcare providers. He also must relinquish the prescription pads that are still in his possession. Minas will be made to face home detention and electronic monitoring. He will be allowed in the community to serve some limited purposes only, that also with the pre-approval of his services officer.
If convicted in the charge of distributing controlled substances, he might face punishment up to 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $1,000,000 and a minimum of three years of supervised release.
