Internet Pharmacy's General Counsel Indicted

Daniel Adkins was the general counsel for Xpress Pharmacy Direct, an internet prescription drug supplier that was shut down in May 2005 by federal authorities for illegally filling over 72,000 prescriptions for pain killers and other controlled substances.  The company's founder, Chris Smith, was indicted in August 2005 and remains in custody.  Adkins is charged with helping Smith to hide assets after learning about the government investigation, and for contacting drug suppliers and assuring them that Xpress Pharmacy Direct was a legitimate business authorized to dispense the medications.  An AP story (here) quotes Adkins' attorney as stating that the government's allegations "are simply not true."
