Doctor pleads guilty in prescription-drug case

I went to high school with this guy!

A Baton Rouge doctor on Thursday admitted to writing prescriptions without a medical reason.

Dr. Mark M. Cotter, 40, pleaded guilty to a five-count indictment, which also included one charge of cocaine distribution and one of marijuana possession.

Cotter and his attorney, Aidan Reynolds, declined to comment as they left the U.S. District Courthouse.

Sentencing is scheduled next week before U.S. District Judge James J. Brady.

On the four most severe counts, Cotter faces maximum sentences of up to 20 years in prison with fines of up to $1 million on each count.
