Pill-Mill Owner Sentenced to 15 Years

The owner of three Jacksonville multimillion dollar pill mills has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Prosecutors said Zachary Timothy Rose, 29, took advantage of people with drug addictions.

According to the Times-Union, Rose faced up to 30 years in prison, but was able to reduce his sentence by turning over names of doctors and employees who worked with him. All the people Rose testified against were acquitted, the Times-Union reports.
