Rush Limbaugh arrested: prescription fraud



Breaking news MSNBC. And so the CON crisis CONtinues... Perhaps his mugshot will be as attractive as his CON friend, Tom Delay. Update: his friend taught him well. This CONservative looks like anything but a CONvict.

Settlement Agreement Ends State Investigation of Rush Limbaugh
Friday April 28, 5:57 pm ET


PALM BEACH, Fla., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to media and other inquiries, Roy Black, Rush Limbaugh's attorney, released the following statement today concerning a settlement agreement with the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office to end the investigation of Mr. Limbaugh:
"I am pleased to announce that the State Attorney's Office and Mr. Limbaugh have reached an agreement whereby a single count charge of doctor shopping filed today by the State Attorney will be dismissed in 18 months. As a primary condition of the dismissal, Mr. Limbaugh must continue to seek treatment from the doctor he has seen for the past two and one half years. This is the same doctor under whose care Mr. Limbaugh has remained free of his addiction without relapse.

"Mr. Limbaugh and I have maintained from the start that there was no doctor shopping, and we continue to hold this position. Accordingly, we filed today with the Court a plea of 'Not Guilty' to the charge filed by the State.

"As part of this agreement, Mr. Limbaugh also has agreed to make a $30,000 payment to the State of Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation. The agreement also provides that he must refrain from violating the law during this 18 months, must pay $30 per month for the cost of "supervision" and comply with other similar provisions of the agreement.

"Mr. Limbaugh had intended to remain in treatment. Thus, we believe the outcome for him personally will be much as if he had fought the charge and won."


The actions taken today are as follows:

-- The State Attorney has filed a single charge of doctor shopping with
the Court. The charge is being held in abeyance under the terms of an
agreement between the State and Mr. Limbaugh.

-- Mr. Limbaugh has filed a plea of "Not Guilty" with the Court.

The formal agreement between Mr. Limbaugh and the State Attorney will be filed with the Court on Monday. The terms of the agreement are substantively as follows:


-- Mr. Limbaugh will continue in treatment with the doctor he has seen for
the past two and one half years.

-- After Mr. Limbaugh completes an additional 18 months of treatment, the
State Attorney has agreed to drop the charge.

-- Mr. Limbaugh has agreed to make a $30,000 payment to the State of
Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation.

Looks like this is the state's way of saving face. I'd guess that Limbaugh will be partying tonight (legal intoxicants only) now that the investigation is being shut down.

He would've paid $30,000 to Florida had he won?

He would have probably paid more than $30,000 to Roy Black if he won.

baaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Yes, I'm sure Rush Limbaugh willingly accepted the appearance of guilt just to help the state of FL 'save face.'

Perhaps you could spare some of what you are smokin for Rush's slush fund...

What appearance of guilt? He was charged, he plead not guilty, and unless he violates the terms of the agreement, the charges will be dropped. Normally when that happens, people recognize it as a failed prosecution not an appearance of guilt. This agreement screams weak case on the part of the prosecution. The carrot that they've offered Limbaugh is the agreement to stop rocking his boat by investigating him.

Oh please, they probably had so much on him that it would destroy his career. He did this just as much to save his personal shortcomings from coming to light as he did for any other reason...

seeing that it would be really hard for him to be blasting other people's shortcomings while his own were being openly exposed. He was so angry and determined to fight the state of FL that there is no way in hell he would have willingly taken this deal unless it was to avoid further hardship either financially, professionally, or his personal freedom. I heard him say numerous times that he was going to fight the charges with every fiber of his 'glorious naked body' because this was nothing more than a political witch hunt.

Paying the state of FL 30k for their investigation costs is NOT fighting with every fiber of your being.

The entertainment value of the shock and confusion on the Free Republic board cannot be overstated.

Oh please, if they had so much on him that it would have destroyed his career, they would have either gone through with a prosecution or they would have insisted on a guilty plea as a part of the plea agreement. I'm sure that avoiding a trial, even if the case was weak, was worth something to Limbaugh, but getting off completely and avoiding the publicity of a trial for $30K is a huge bargain for someone with his wealth.

I see that you've reduced the number of 's introducing your OP. I guess that means you've lost a little confidence in how damning this piece of news really is. haha

Not at all. I didn't want to detract from the SUPERSIZED mug shot.

But you are on a roll with the spinning so, please, continue.

So paying off someone who was out to get you is an ok thing to do after you swore and vowed to fight on principle. Yep, that sounds like Rush and his CONbots.

I don't care for the man, myself. I do wish him well with his recovery. Admitting that you have a problem is only the first step on a very long road.

Yep, he just admitted he's a junkie if not one lucky SOB that would never get this treatment if he were Joe Blow on blow.
