Federal prosecutors want property, funds forfeited in drug case against W.Va. doctor


MARTINSBURG, West Virginia — Federal authorities plan to seek property and cash forfeitures from a Martinsburg doctor if she's convicted of drug charges.

A superseding indictment filed Tuesday against Dr. Tressie Montene Duffy says the government will seek the forfeiture of any property used, or intended to be used, to commit crimes, including at least $30,000 in cash.

Duffy is accused in of writing blank prescriptions and allowing her staff to write scripts for Xanax, Oxycodone, Valium and other drugs.

Tuesday's superseding indictment comes less than a month after Duffy was charged in federal court with 100 counts of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

In July, the West Virginia Board of Medicine released a 31-page report suggesting that Duffy's medical license should be revoked.
