CONCORD - A doctor practicing in the north country of New Hampshire was indicted in connection with his unlawful distribution of opioids and benzodiazepines, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announced Friday.

Robert G. Soucy Jr., D.O., 70, of Columbia, was indicted on 12 counts of distribution of controlled substances. Soucy made his initial appearance in federal court today.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Dr. Soucy allegedly distributed fentanyl, oxycodone, hydromorphone, methadone, lorazepam, and diazepam to individuals outside the usual course of professional practice, and without a legitimate medical purpose. He recently surrendered his Drug Enforcement Administration registration and also did not renew his medical license, and, therefore, is no longer permitted to prescribe controlled substances.

If convicted, Dr. Soucy faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on each count.
