BUFFALO, N.Y. - A doctor from Clarence has admitted he unlawfully distributed Oxycodone.
Dr. Matthew Bennett pleaded guilty in federal court Monday. He was arrested three years ago.
Investigators say Bennett wrote prescriptions both at his office on River Road in North Tonawanda and at his home on Hunting Valley Road, without ever performing a physical examination.
As part of his plea agreement, the 49-year-old will surrender his medical license. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a possible million dollar fine when sentenced in July.
