A former Las Vegas-based physician who used his pain management clinic in northwest Arizona to illegally distribute prescription drugs is going to prison. According to the “Review Journal’, Dr. Albert Yeh, 47, was sentenced to 2½ years.

Back in January he pleaded guilty to fraudulent scheme, illegal control of an enterprise and money laundering. The deal required him to pay restitution of $683,000, forfeit $2 million in personal property, surrender his medical licenses in Nevada and Arizona. Yeh will also serve five years probation after his prison sentence.
