Imposition of a 70-month sentence on a 60 year-old nurse practitioner for prescribing a variety of controlled substances to people, whom she knew did not have a legitimate need for the medications, is affirmed where, although the government did not systematically address every prescription the defendant wrote to the patients, it presented ample evidence to prove that the prescriptions had no legitimate medical purpose and were written outside the usual course of appropriate medical practice.
