Dr. Kermit Gosnell Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison

Judge Cynthia Rufe sentenced Dr. Kermit Gosnell to 30 years in prison Monday in federal court. Gosnell was sentenced for distribution of drugs from his West Philadelphia doctor’s office. This could be perceived as merely a drop in the bucket compared to the three consecutive life terms without parole he is already serving for murder and other crimes. Gosnell pleaded guilty in July after the murder trial to charges that he illegally distributed OxyContin and other painkillers per therepublic.com.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica Natali said one drug dealer obtained prescriptions under 58 different names.

“This was not a doctor treating people for pain,” said Natali. “He was filling prescriptions on demand, with zero oversight.”

Kermit Gosnell’s name first rose to infamy when he made national headlines after he was tried and convicted of murder and other crimes after performing illegal, late-term abortions at his West Philadelphia clinic. Many of his clients were low-income women, teens, and immigrants. Perhaps the most horrific of his offenses was the killing of three babies born alive.

These crimes became apparent while the FBI and DEA were investigating reports of an illegal pill mill being operated out of his office.

Along with being slapped with a 30-year sentence, Judge Cynthia Rufe also ordered him to pay a $1,200 penalty and a $50,000 fine.

The prosecution showed evidence that Gosnell sold prescriptions for over 600,000 oxycodone pills alone, many to the same customers.
