Kenneth C. Coleman of Houston, Texas, who owned Acacia Pharma Distributors, Inc. and Four Corners Suppliers, Inc., has been sentenced to 30 years in prison following his conviction at trial for money laundering, tax evasion, and related charges.  Coleman and his companies purchased second-hand prescription medications from various illegitimate sources and sold them to a third party, Green Valley Medical Distributors, LLC, which then sold the medications to pharmacies as if they were brand new.  In arranging the sales, Coleman created fraudulent documents that misrepresented the sources of the medications and their prior sales.  After being paid by Green Valley, Coleman and others would pay the suppliers of the drugs, often in cash, and failed to report income or file corporate income taxes.  Coleman was also ordered to forfeit $20.3 million and pay $717,000 in restitution to the IRS.  DOJ
