Former Manchester Nurse Practitioner Convicted of Unlawfully Distributing Prescription Opioids

On September 1, 2021, following a three-day trial in the United States District Court at Chattanooga, a jury convicted Mark Daniel Allen, 64, formerly of Manchester, Tennessee, of unlawfully distributing prescription opioids to patients at a clinic he owned in Manchester, Tennessee. Following the jury’s verdict, Allen was taken into custody. Sentencing is scheduled for January 21, 2022, at 10:00 a.m., before the Honorable Travis R. McDonough. Allen faces up to 20 years in prison for each count of conviction.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Allen was a nurse practitioner who distributed oxycodone not for a legitimate medical purpose outside the course of professional practice and used his clinic for unlawful drug distribution. Specifically, the evidence showed that through his clinic, Volunteer Family Medical, he wrote controlled substance prescriptions for more than 15,000 pills to three women with whom he had sexual relationships, and a male patient who later passed away. Allen was convicted of one count of maintaining a drug-involved premises and six counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance outside the scope of professional practice.

Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; Acting U.S. Attorney Francis M. Hamilton III of the Eastern District of Tennessee; Special Agent in Charge Joseph Carrico of the FBI’s Knoxville Field Office; Special Agent in Charge Derrick Jones of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG); and Director David Rausch of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) made the announcement.
