Tierra Verde doctor indicted for illegally dispensing prescription drugs

TAMPA — The U.S. Attorney's Office has indicted Dr. Kevin Mark Denny of Tierra Verde for distributing prescription drugs illegally.

Denny, 53, keeps an office in Tampa. Federal authorities say he dispensed Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and the generic version of Xanax outside the scope of his professional practice. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Because Denny remains under investigation, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration has seized his patients' medical files. Patients can contact the agency at (813) 287-5160 and ask for a law enforcement agent in the Tactical Diversion Squad to learn how to obtain a copy of their medical records.
