A jury convicted Delray Beach physician Dr. Barry Schultz last week on 55 counts of distributing narcotics to pain clinic patients, the Palm Beach Post reports.

The 59-year-old Schultz, who has been stripped of his medical license, faces at least 25 years in prison, according to the Post. He also faces manslaughter changes for the overdose death of a patient in 2010, the Post reports.
