Former Doctor Draws 10 Years for Child Porn, Drug Crimes

Posted:

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a former Roanoke physician and methadone clinic director to 10 years of prison, followed by eight years of federal supervision on drug and child pornography-related offenses.

Fifty-two-year-old Steven J. Collins was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Glen Conrad on Tuesday. In February, Collins pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography and two counts of illegal distribution of oxycodone.

Authorities say an August 2014 drug raid of Collins' medical practice resulted in agents finding a child pornography collection estimated at 137,042 images and 203 videos.

Prosecutors say Collins supplied five people with prescriptions for strong, addictive drugs outside normal protocol. According to prosecutors, taking the drugs caused one woman to be hospitalized twice.
