Six New York residents have been charged with collaborating in order to maintain a prescription drug operation with the intent to distribute the drugs throughout the country. Making matters seem even worse, authorities say the drug ring was using one member's apartment, which doubled as a day care center, as a storage site for many of the drugs. Federal prosecutors indicate that they will pursue these drug charges, because the health and safety of young children was reportedly at risk.
Food allergies are a serious concern for many people living in New York. Triggering these allergies can have devastating consequences.

A car accident can be a frightening incident for all of those involved. This is especially true when one party is injured, or even killed, and the other may face criminal charges stemming from the collision.

A 62-year-old New York doctor has been arrested and faces federal charges for prescribing painkillers to patients who reportedly have no need for the medicine. The federal criminal charges, which are currently pending, accuse him of illegal drug distribution. He has been conditionally released after agreeing to mental health therapy and voluntarily suspending his practice.
