Fred Sisto was recently hired for a high profile case in Brick, New Jersey.  A physician assistant in Brick is facing a series of charges for allegedly distributing prescription drugs illegally.  Many news sources are covering the story.  The Asbury Park Press stated the following:

“A physician assistant faces a series of charges after Monmouth County authorities say he was selling prescriptions for opiates and other drugs.

Frank Campione, 45, of Brick was released from Monmouth County Jail after posting a $150,000 bail. He is charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, a second-degree offense, as well as unlawful practice of medicine and conspiracy to obtain a controlled dangerous substance by fraud, both third-degree offenses.

Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office investigated Campione for four months. Authorities say between January 2015 and January 2016, Campione met with people in public places to sell prescriptions for drugs like oxycodone and Xanax.

Campione faces five to 10 years in prison for the second-degree offense and up to five years in prison for each of the third-degree offenses.”

The Patch reported the following:

“A physician assistant from Brick Township has been charged with selling prescriptions for oxycodone and Xanax as well as other drugs, Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni announced.

Frank Campione, 45, of Stoney Point Drive, Brick, is charged with one count each of third-degree unlawful practice of medicine, second-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, and third-degree conspiracy to obtain a controlled dangerous substance by fraud, said Charles Webster, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.

Campione has posted $150,000 bail with no option to post 10 percent, as set by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Honora O’Brien Kilgallen, Webster said.

Campione’s arrest was the result of a four-month investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, Webster said.

The investigation revealed that between January 2015 and January 2016, Campione, a licensed physician assistant with a home office in Brick, met with individuals in public places and sold them prescriptions — prescriptions that were not the result of a medical diagnosis — for the opiates and other controlled dangerous substances, including oxycodone and Xanax, Webster said.”

Fred Sisto commented on the case by stating, “We haven’t received any type of reports or evidence. He posted his bail and looks forward to clearing his name.”

Mr.Sisto is an experienced attorney in the area of prescription drug crimes.
