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.
