Kansas pharmacist, Rick Kloxin, pled no contest to 14 misdemeanor counts in the Hogan’s Pharmacy internet pharmacy case. Kloxin was the lead pharmacist at Hogan’s Pharmacy and plans to cooperate in the prosecution of Jolane and Mark Poindexter, the owners of Hogan’s. In March, Kloxin lost his license and was fined $62,000. A discussion of the administrative opinion can be found here. As a reminder, the issues discussed at the Kansas administrative hearing parallel many of the federal Internet pharmacy law criminal defense issues (i.e. the Ryan Haight Act) analyzed on this website.
The Poindexter’s preliminary hearing began last Thursday in Lyons, Kansas. They are charged under Kansas state law with operating an online questionnaire based Internet pharmacy.
