The Wall Street Journal: 2 ex-Insys saleswomen plead guilty in fentanyl kickback schemes

Two former pharmaceutical saleswomen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to bribing doctors in exchange for prescribing a powerful fentanyl medication made by Insys Therapeutics Inc., the troubled drugmaker facing multiple investigations by state and federal prosecutors.

Karen Hill pleaded guilty on Tuesday in federal court in Mobile, Ala., to violating the federal anti-kickback law by bribing doctors to prescribe the Insys INSY, +1.12% drug, known by the brand name Subsys. According to court documents filed on Tuesday, Hill has the ability to cooperate with prosecutors as part of her plea agreement. Hill was hired by Insys in 2012, and eventually became the company’s district manager for the Miami region.
