Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen M. Schenning announced Thursday a doctor who was enrolled at a Potomac, Maryland urgent care center was indicted on charges of distribution and dispensation and causing and attempting to cause the distribution and dispensation of controlled dangerous substances.

Judge And JurySixty-two-year-old William Samuel Vaughn, III, aka “Skip,” of Largo allegedly prescribed four people 3,210 20 milligram and 30 milligram Adderall pills without a legitimate medical purpose and outside the usual course of professional practice from January 2015 through June 2017, according to the 66-count indictment.

“Today’s indictment and arrest exposes Vaughn’s lack of concern for the true health of his patients,” FBI Special Agent-in-Charge of the Baltimore Field Office Gordon B. Johnson said in a statement. “Vaughn violated his privilege and authority to prescribe controlled drugs lawfully by putting his own personal gain ahead of his patients’ health and well-being. When trusted doctors fail, the FBI and our partners are going to hold them accountable.”

Vaughn faces a maximum 20-year prison sentence.
