OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- An Oshkosh pharmacy owner charged with selling muscle relaxants and pain relievers on the Internet has agreed to plead guilty in federal court.
Prosecutors say Charles G. Schultz signed a contract with a website that distributes the drugs nationwide to customers without prescriptions. Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports (http://oshko.sh/Rrv640 ) Wednesday that Schultz made more than $235,000 from the practice since 2006.
Court documents show Schultz has agreed to plead guilty to charges of distributing controlled substances and defrauding the government. A hearing on the deal is set for April 28.
Drugs were sold through an online retailer called RX Limited, also known as AlphaNet-Trading. Court documents say Schultz received two payments from the site's bank in Hong Kong.
Schultz owned and operated pharmacies in Winnebago and Green counties.
