[ISP] Vigo Co. Doctor Arrested for Prescription Fraud
Start Date: 3/13/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/13/2014
Entry Description

Vigo County—On Friday, March 7th at 1:30p.m., detectives from the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section Pharmaceutical Diversion Unit arrested a Terre Haute podiatrist for alleged fraudulent prescription violations. The doctor was taken into custody at a Terre Haute hospital and incarcerated in the Vigo County Jail. The arrest was the result of a nearly four month long investigation by ISP.

Arrested: Dr. James L. Hilaire, age 52, of Terre Haute, IN.

Charges: (3) counts of Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud and Deceit, each a D felony

The ISP Pharmaceutical Diversion detectives believe that on at least three separate occasions from August 2013 through October 2013, Dr. Hilaire wrote false prescriptions for the pain killer Hydrocodone (Vicodin) to a patient of his without the patient’s knowledge. Using the same local Terre Haute pharmacy, Hilaire would then pick up the prescriptions himself and allegedly disperse them to acquaintances for pain relief. The patient, whose name was used for the false prescriptions, became aware of the alleged fraud and contacted the Indiana State Police.

The investigation is ongoing and no other information will be released.

Assisting the ISP Drug Enforcement Section was the US Drug Enforcement Agency.
