The case of a New River Valley doctor charged with illegally prescribing pain medications to her patients is scheduled to go to a jury Thursday.
After nearly two weeks of testimony in Roanoke’s federal court, prosecutors this afternoon completed their evidence against Dr. Linda Sue Cheek.
Cheek did not testify or present evidence. When the case resumes Thursday morning, jurors are expected to hear closing arguments before beginning their deliberations.
A 173-count indictment charges Cheek with illegally prescribing drugs from her pain management practice in Dublin. Prosecutors say Cheek either prescribed medications to her patients without a valid DEA registration number, or used one issued to another doctor in her practice.
