OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- The former commander of the Oxford Police Department narcotics division has been sentenced on federal charges in a "doctor-shopping" case.
A spokesperson with the U. S. Attorney's office says Searn Lynch received two years of supervised probation during a hearing Monday.
Lynch entered a guilty plea to one count of obtaining a prescription through fraud and deception in April.
A federal indictment says Lynch was arrested on charges alleging that he got prescriptions from at least 17 doctors.
Lynch was fired from the Oxford Police Department in November following his arrest.
