Claremore doc sentenced in opioid-sharing scheme


TULSA — A former Claremore orthopedic surgeon was sentenced Wednesday to five months in federal prison and eight months home confinement for his part in a hydrocodone pill sharing scheme.

Chief U.S. District Judge John Dowdell acknowledged Wednesday when he sentenced Jeremy David Thomas that the 43-year-old will likely not serve any time in the federal Bureau of Prisons.

Dowdell said Thomas will likely complete his sentence in the Creek County Detention Center, where he has been held since pleading guilty Nov. 26, to drug conspiracy and illegal hydrocodone distribution charges.
