Dr. Mark Burtman

OXFORD, Miss. (WCBI) – A Columbus doctor must serve 13 months in federal prison for running a pain killer pill mill.

Doctor Mark Burtman has been stripped of his license.

He was sentenced Tuesday (10/30) in federal court in Oxford.

He must report to federal prison by January 7th.

In addition to the prison time, he must pay more than 50 thousand dollars in fines and forfeit his home on Canterbury Road in Columbus.

The charges stem from an eight-month investigation that ended in June 20-11 with a raid by federal, state and local authorities on his Columbus office.

Earlier this year, he agreed to plead guilty to three counts of prescribing Lortab, Xanax and Percocet for no medical reasons.

He faced as much as 35 years in prison and more that one point seven million dollars in fines.
