A Doylestown doctor will spend the next two to six years in prison for prescribing highly addictive opioid medications to patients in his care.
Dr. Richard Alan Kondan, 59, appeared before Bucks County Common Pleas Judge Gary B. Gilman on Monday, Nov. 28, 2022, who handed down the state prison sentence. Judge Gilman also ordered Kondan to perform 200 hours of community service as part of his parole.
In March, Kondan entered a nolo contendere plea to a felony count of unlawful prescription of a controlled substance by a practitioner.
The joint investigation was conducted by the Office of Attorney General and Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force, which was created in 2017 to fight the opioid crisis.
