Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
I have a strong desire to write this post without any judgmental statements, and I shall do my best to do so. However, I want to emphasize the important role certain positions/careers play in our society and the importance these roles play in encouraging moral character and values than others. On the other hand, no one is immuned from character flaws, nor greed. I am not writing this to point out that today’s Crimediva is more or less important than any others I have posted, but to shed light on the position of the person.
Today’s Crimediva is ‘Doctor’ Jacqueline Lopresti, 52, of Fair Haven, N.J… Dr. Lopresti pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. Dr. Lopresti was sentenced to 57 months [4.5 + years] in federal prison, ordered to pay restitution of $465,000, and fines of $5,000. In this profession, there is a high possibility that she may be able to practice medicine again one day. [Something to think about- unlike most jobs where a person’s barred for life.]
According to court records, in 2009, Dr. Lopresti issued prescriptions for drugs containing oxycodone, outside the usual course of medical practice and not for any legitimate medical purpose. The prescriptions were filled at various pharmacies located in and around Monmouth, Ocean, and Atlantic counties and ‘redistributed’ by others. [Yes that sounds like a drug ring to me]. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in brand name pills such as OxyContin, Roxicodone, and Percocet. A controlled substance is highly addictive.
As I mentioned above, my desire not to be judgmental, however, I want to stress the importance of this dual role of doctor drug dealer, which in this instances amounts to no more than greed. People in these positions are able to live the “American Dream” easily. Let’s do the right thing, the right way, without destroying lives [Including your own and your family] and not dishonor the position.
