A federal indictment unsealed in January blames Tampa physician Dr. Edward Neil Feldman for the overdose death of three patients. 

But as the Tampa Bay Times reports, the charges involving powdered oxycodone are just part of a long and troubled history with the law, from allegations of soliciting prostitutes to pleading guilty in a federal case on kickbacks for MRIs.

About a decade ago, the Florida Board of Medicine pulled Feldman ‘s license, but lifted the suspension after one year and he still holds a license to practice medicine, according to the Times. He faces life in prison if convicted on the charges detailed in the indictment, the Times reports.
