Psychiatrist posed as DEA agent to thwart investigation into illegally prescribing drugs, says Judge

May 9, 2017


On May 9, 2017, Margaret “Meg” Knowles, a former psychiatrist in Wisconsin, was sentenced to 16 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.  She had supplied herself with amphetamines by writing prescriptions in other doctors’ names and pled guilty in March to attempting to obtain a drug by fraud.

According to District Judge James Peterson, Knowles had posed as a Drug Enforcement Administration agent and a corporate attorney to thwart the investigation and other doctors during the course of her crime.
