Dr. Eric Jacobson
Dr. Eric Jacobson faces 7 to 9 years in prison under a plea deal for illegally prescribing oxycodone and other powerful painkillers to scores of patients. If convicted at trial, he could have been sentenced to 20+ years in prison.
One of those charged, a doctor from Great Neck, is accused of conspiring to distribute oxycodone to “shoppers” he knew were reselling to addicts, prosecutors said.
State records show that Dr. Eric Jacobson prescribed thousands of painkillers to David Laffer and his wife Melinda Brady in the months before Laffer killed four people at a Medford pharmacy.
