Too much evidence, charges dropped
A doctor on the lamb got off on charges in nation's largest Internet pharmacy prosecution because, in part, there's too much evidence. Armando Angulo was indicted in 2007 but fled to his native Panama. He was accused of selling prescription drugs to patients who were never examined or even interviewed by a doctor. Prosecutors called it a multimillion dollar scheme. But a federal judge in Iowa dismissed the charge at the request of prosecutors. They say they want to throw out more than 400,000 documents and two terabytes of electronic data they say is too expensive to maintain. Panama will not extradite him to the U.S. so prosecutors gave up on the pursuit.
