(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.
