Just when you think those involved with South Florida's 'pill mills' couldn't get any seedier, along comes Palm Beach County.
Deputies there arrested pain clinic employee Dr. Scott Baren Oster, accusing him of offering prescriptions of Percocet to a man in exchange for sex with two women.
But the man Oster met at the Seaspray Inn and Beach Resort in Palm Beach Shores was a confidential police informant, and the two women with him were undercover police officers.
Oster was arrested and charged with two counts of drug trafficking, and faces at least 25 years in prison if convicted, reports the Palm Beach Post.
"I let my little head think for my big head," Oster said, according to the Sherrif's report.
Authorities say Oster wrote out two prescriptions for 150 and 90 pills each, with the understanding that in exchange the man would then leave him alone with the women.
He admitted he had never seen any of the three as patients.
According to investigators, Oster twice previously traded prescriptions for oxycodone, alprazolam, Valium, and other drugs for sex in hotel rooms.
His prior place of employment, the North Palm Beach Pain Clinic, was raided in February during a crackdown on South Florida pill mills. Oster posted bond Friday evening, but was not immediately reachable for comment.
