Posted: Saturday, May 22, 2010 10:00 am

CORUNNA — The legal battles for many area doctors are now over after the last doctor caught in a Mid Michigan Area Group Narcotics Enforcement Team sting has been sentenced.

Dr. Jeffrey Hoffa was sentenced to 24 months of probation and 80 hours of community service Friday in 35th Circuit Court after pleading guilty to attempted possession of cocaine in an amount less than 25 grams and no contest to recklessly placing false information on a medical chart in March — charges that Shiawassee County Prosecutor Randy Colbry said would cause Hoffa’s medical license to be suspended.

    He got it easy. In shiawassee county you apparently can do drugs, sell them, commit fraud, drive drunk and get a slap on the wrist. The crazy thing is all the time and money we spend/waste on magnet and these are the results, probation. Not a good investment. I wish i could have had a cheesy sentence like that when i was a vulnerable teen and was nailed for life and spent 1 month of my senior yr in jail and that whole summer because i was 17 and the she was 15. The system cares more for a drug addicted fraudulant doctor/prosecutor than a naive teenage boy still in high school with no money or influence to defend a consenting natural teenage function turned into csc2. live with that my friends and see how easy your life is... Its been almost 20yrs and its still haunting me. sorry for dragging on.
