Pill Mill Raked in Piles of Cash, Owner Says

The Florida Channel
Leon County Judge John Cooper on June 30, 2022, in a screen grab from The Florida Channel.

Christopher George told a jury that he made close to $40 million running pill mills in South Florida with his twin brother, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. He said they took in so much cash they had to store it in garbage cans, the Palm Beach Post reports. Testimony  from George, who is serving 17 1/2 years in federal prison, could help convict two doctors who worked at the so-called pain management clinics who are charged in the overdose deaths of nine patients.
