John Martin Quoted in New York Law Journal on Appellate Reversal of Charges Against his client, a Suffolk County Pharmacist, in HIV Drug Scheme

January 25, 2019


John Martin was quoted in the New York Law Journal, “Appeals Court Tosses Charges Against Suffolk County Pharmacist in HIV Drug Scheme.”

The article discusses the state appeals court decision to toss eight of 10 convictions of his client, a Suffolk County pharmacist who was sentenced to prison in 2016 for taking part in a scheme to sell black-market prescription drugs used for treating HIV to patients.

In the January 25, 2019 article, Mr. Martin, who argued the appeal, stated “his client was a middleman in the scheme and that prosecutors presented ‘zero evidence’ that any patients were harmed by drugs sold as part of the scheme.” He also stated “I think the AG’s office, like the jury, decided they didn’t like my client and just decided to hurt him as much as they could and they weren’t careful with the law.”
