93 Year Old Doctor Gets 10 Years In Jail
Las Vegas August 1, 2017 – A 93 year old pain management doctor was sentenced to 10 years in jail and called a drug dealer by a Las Vegas Judge. Some DOC readers believe that the real motivation for throwing this World War II veteran in jail and accusing him of drug dealing was to take his assets which the judged fined him 2.5 million dollars. Senior U.S. District Judge Kent Dawson imposed the prison term and the fine, hurtling allegations that the 93 year old Doctor Henri Wetselaar was supplying scores of drug addicts and dealers with powerful opioids.
A witness to the sentencing, Dave Stewart, said, “What in the hell in going on with these prosecutors and judges!” Apparently, the prosecutor had asked the judge to give Wetselaar 20 years in the slammer, to teach him a lesson for dealing with drug dealers and addicts. Dave said that government overreach and the prosecutors have crossed the line and he believes that the real reason for doctor Wetselaar’s lock-up and harassment, is the result of money. They need money, said Mr. Stewart, “Throwing his hands up in the air with disgust.” The government is plotting to rip-off the professional people of this country and take their hard earned savings and bank accounts. These are police outfits he said, and they are not interested in proving anybody innocent and showing evidence that would exonerate them.
Doctor Wetselaar Will Die In Jail
The doctor suffers from ailments that include prostate cancer, chronic renal failure, multiple heart valve disorders and brain atrophy. Throughout the court process, Wetselaar’s failing health caused several trial delays as he was in and out of the hospital. With all this stuff on his plate, the prosecutor still asked for a 20-year prison sentence. The prosecutor stuck to his 20 year prison term because he said, “Wetselaar’s behavior was far from that of a doctor,” prosecutors wrote in a separate sentencing memorandum filed last week. “Rather he was an individual who cared little for the health and well-being of his patients.”
The jury convicted doctor Wetselaar of all 11 drug counts, money laundering and related counts contained in a 2011 indictment against him. His medical assistant and a local pharmacist also were charged in the case. According to the indictment, Wetselaar prescribed large amounts of drugs — including oxycodone, hydrocodone, Xanax and Soma — to more than 230 people who did not medically need them. This is the same MO that is seen all around the United States. How much evidence did the prosecution withhold from the Jury? What kind of exonerative evidence was not given to the jury or concealed? Did DEA / Police misconduct play a role in the investigation?
The answers to all of these questions is highly possible, since the police misconduct is intentional hidden by prosecutors and judges. Doctor Wetselaar, at the age of 93 years old, was a sitting duck for law enforcement and greedy DEA agents to come and take his nice stash of money, totaling 2.5 million. The Medical Board should be the one getting jail time for letting a 93 year old work in a clinic and the prosecutor should be put in jail for going after his money and using government confidential informants to trick this doctor into giving them pills and then arresting him. It’s a cold world out there and I guess somebody has to do the devils work.

Your Membership helps to provide support for thousands of doctors who are being unlawfully jailed and stripped of their medical careers for treating patients with legal prescriptions.
- JOIN THE FIGHT: Please support the American Pain Institute (API) at www.americanpaininstitute.org and get involve with their PAIN ADVOCACY WEEK, April 23rd – 30th, 2018, March On Washington and donate to help this cause. Thousands of Chronic Sickle Cell patients’ lives are being drastically reduced and they are dying because doctors are afraid to follow NIH treatment guidelines due to bigotry and government wrongful persecution of doctors in this country.
- HELP MAKE CHANGE: Sign our petition requesting that Congress enact a Medical Board Civilian Police Review Committee law to deter medical board police and prosecutorial misconduct and hold these officials responsible for their actions. The most common crime against doctors made by the medical board police teams are “FALSE REPORTS” that police officers refer to as accusations. These are criminal actions by law enforcement and they are not held accountable for making false statements, perjury, and manufacturing evidence. A Civilian Police Review Committee will help stop these senseless acts against healthcare providers and restore justice and constitutional rights.
