Dublin Doctor Sentenced to 33 Months in Jail

Posted: Updated:

A doctor from Dublin is sentenced to 33 months in prison for illegally distributing pain medication to her patients.

Linda Cheek learned her fate Tuesday after two days of testimony in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.

Back in February, a jury convicted Cheek on 172 counts of distributing pain medicine illegally. Evidence showed Cheek prescribed the medicine without a valid DEA registration number or used a DEA registration number issued to another doctor.
