A Clarksville doctor faces 45 counts and a possible 30-year sentence in federal court for unlawfully distributing opioids and committing health care fraud, The Nashville Post reports. Samson Orusa, who is also a pastor for God's Sanctuary Church in Clarksville, was charged with multiple counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance outside the bounds of professional medical practice, health care fraud and money laundering. Beginning in January 2014, Orusa allegedly opened his medical practice with the intent of mass distribution for personal gain.
