OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) — The former commander of the Oxford Police Department narcotics division will appear before a federal judge in September for sentencing on federal charges in a "doctor shopping" case.

Searn Lynch entered a guilty plea to one count of obtaining a prescription through fraud and deception in April.

Lynch was scheduled to be sentenced this week, but the court appearance was postponed.

Court records show 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 after being charged with "doctor shopping" for prescription pain medicine.

He will be sentenced September 16 at 1:45 p.m. in U. S. District Court in Oxford.
