GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A Las Vegas physician has pleaded guilty in an ongoing federal investigation into oxycodone abuse.

Victor Bruce pleaded guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Las Vegas. He faces twenty years in prison and a million dollar fine when sentenced by a federal judge in October.

The 49 year old was arrested last December. Federal authorities said Bruce operated a clinic on South Hualapai. He is alleged to have had no patients, but was writing oxycodone prescriptions for a street level drug dealer.
