Dr. John Littleford indicted after 2 patients die

Dr. John Littleford was indicted in Denver by a federal grand jury on charges or money laundering and illegal distribution of prescription drugs along with three others. He had a medical practice in Parker, and was arrested in Kansas. At least 2 patients who received medication from Littleford died, as alleged in the indictment.
The 70 year old operated and owned the Pain & Injury Clinic in Parker, Colorado. Diana Smithling, a 39 year old woman, was the office manager, while 63 year old Stanley Callas and 61 year old Scott Eskanos co-owned Crown Point Pharmacy in Parker and Sky Ridge Pharmacy in Lone Tree.
The four of them knowingly conspired and worked to dispense and distribute interdependently, or facilitated the distribution and dispensing of controlled substances from April 2010 to November 2012. There was often a lack of a legitimate medical purpose and the medication was provided outside the course of professional medical practice. The dosages and quantities were high enough to enable misuse, abuses and bring about addiction in patients. Littleford wrote opioid prescriptions for patients who still had medication left over from a prior prescription. His unlawful distribution of Oxycodone has led to 2 individuals dying.
He has been charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance resulting in death, one count conspiracy to distribute/dispense a controlled substance, 21 counts of aiding and abetting in the same, four counts of money laundering to promote illegal activity and one count of committing money laundering.
