MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Felony prescription drug-related charges continue to mount against a Martinsburg man accused of faking terminal cancer after a benefit for him raised more than $4,200 in contributions earlier this year.
Steven Lee Mohn, 38, is accused of fraudulently obtaining prescriptions for 2,270 tablets of oxycodone, a powerful pain relief narcotic, from three physicians since December 2011, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.
Mohn was arraigned Monday on 14 counts of prescription fraud by Magistrate JoAnn Overington, the court records said.
Mohn, who was previously charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance (oxycodone and Xanax), waived his right to a preliminary hearing on those charges Tuesday in Magistrate Court, according to Berkeley County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Richard Stephens.
Mohn has been incarcerated at Eastern Regional Jail since Monday, and Stephens said the defendant’s bond has been revoked.
Mohn obtained oxycodone from physicians in Bethesda, Md., Washington, D.C, and Martinsburg, and each of the doctors were unaware that the defendant was obtaining the drug from another physician, court documents said.
