A federal jury in its third day of deliberations acquitted three doctors and one investor Thursday on charges they were involved in a multimillion-dollar pill mill.
Todd Perla, Marc Tafflin and Anthony Posca were accused of writing thousands of prescriptions for oxycodone as part of a scheme that made millions for the three pain clinics where they worked in Jacksonville. Jason Votrobek, an investor in one of the clinics, also was on trial.
Perla, Tafflin and Votrobek faced charges of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute controlled substances and money laundering. Posca faced the same controlled substance charge but was not indicted for money laundering.
