CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – A medical doctor in Charleston has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for charges of illegal distribution of drugs.

That’s according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which made the announcement Monday.

Muhammed Samer Nasher-Alneam admitted to writing prescriptions in July of 2014 for oxycodone and methadone pills that were not for legitimate medical purposes.

Nasher pleaded guilty to the charges in August. Nasher will also be on supervised release for three years once his sentence is over.

Nasher agreed to permanently surrender both his medical license and DEA registration.

He also agreed to never seek reinstatement of a license to practice as a doctor in any other state.
