Chris George, his wife Dianna Pavnick George and his mother Denice Haggerty all pleaded guilty for their role in one of the biggest illegal drug networks in this country’s history. George and his wife have a four-month-old daughter who has never seen her father wearing anything besides prison clothes.
Chris George pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering and now faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced on Feb. 3. His wife and mother each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Both women face possible five years in prison and $250,000 when they are sentenced next year.
George’s twin brother, Jeff, pleaded guilty last month in federal court to a charge of second-degree murder in the death of a patient at one of his South Florida pain clinics. He also pleaded guilty in a charge of trafficking pain pills and is cooperating with federal investigators in the case against his brother. The George brothers ran a $40 million dollar pain clinic empire.
