Dr. Oscar Lightner, 73,& Andres Martinez Jr., 29, of Jomori Health& Wellness Sentenced For Pill Mill

On April 11, both Lightner and Martinez were found guilty of unlawfully distributing and dispensing controlled substances, as well as conspiracy.




Both Texas doctor and medical clinic office manager have been handed a seven-year prison sentence for thier involvement in a pill mill clinic that illicitly prescribed more than 600,000 opioid pills in exchange for cash.


Dr. Oscar Lightner, aged 73, and Andres Martinez Jr., aged 29, both residents of Laredo, were found guilty of operating Jomori Health and Wellness (Jomori) as a pill mill, according to court documents and trial evidence. The doctor prescribed dangerous combinations of controlled substances, such as hydrocodone, carisoprodol, and alprazolam, without any legitimate medical purpose.


In return, patients paid cash amounts ranging from $250 to $500. Martinez, who served as Jomori's office manager and was Lightner's stepson, collaborated with crew leaders to bring in multiple individuals, including those residing in homeless shelters, to pose as patients and obtain prescriptions for opioids and other controlled substances.


The scheme generated over $1.2 million in cash for over a span of 14 months, resulting in the illegal distribution and dispensing of more than 600,000 opioids and other controlled substances. On April 11, both Lightner and Martinez were found guilty of unlawfully distributing and dispensing controlled substances, as well as conspiracy.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri, U.S. Attorney Alamdar S. Hamdani, and Special Agent in Charge Daniel C. Comeaux have jointly announced the outcome of the investigation conducted by the DEA. The case was prosecuted by Trial Attorneys Monica Cooper and Andrew Tamayo from the Criminal Division's Fraud Section.


The Fraud Section plays a crucial role in the Criminal Division's fight against health care fraud through the Health Care Fraud Strike Force Program. This program, which has been in operation since March 2007, consists of nine strike forces operating across 27 federal districts. Together, they have successfully charged over 5,400 defendants who have collectively billed federal health care programs and private insurers for more than $27 billion.
