Dan Schneider, the former pharmacy technician who was arrested for allegedly stealing prescription drugs from a pharmacy in Texas, was sentenced on Tuesday to 30 months in prison.

Schneider pleaded guilty in May to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud in a health care fraud scheme.

The pharmacist allegedly tried to get prescription drugs for a patient in a Texas pharmacy and sold them for about $5,000 per month.

Schmeider allegedly stole about $1 million worth of prescription drugs.

He pleaded guilty to stealing about $400,000 in prescriptions, and his probation is expected to last at least two years.

Schnecker’s lawyer argued that he should have been released in April 2018.

He has already been deported three times and is awaiting sentencing in Texas.

What to expect as your doctor renews your license

Texas is the only state in the country that doesn’t have an open-records law.

And that means doctors can’t be held accountable for a patient’s prescription history or for the drugs they prescribe, even if the doctor knows about the problem and the patient is aware of it.

Pharmacist licenses are issued by the Texas Board of Pharmacy.

The board has several requirements for renewals.

They include passing a written exam, passing a background check, paying a fee and passing a health exam.

But the state’s attorney general says that does not require all doctors to keep records of all prescriptions.

“I think the governor and others who have talked about this as a priority have never really looked at the data,” said Austin attorney Mark D’Angelo, who represents the attorney general’s office.

The attorney general is asking the Texas Medical Board to require doctors to maintain the records, including when they change prescriptions or prescribe another medication, and if they give new patients a new prescription.

The attorney general has also asked the board to require physicians to submit quarterly reports on their prescribing practices.

“You can’t have a state medical board, which is supposed to be an independent entity, being in a position to be able to say, ‘Oh, you didn’t do that,’ ” D’angelo said.

The Texas Board has not commented on the attorney General’s request.
