      Local doctor pleads guilty

      A local doctor pleads guilty to charges he illegally prescribed Oxycodone to patients.

      62 year old Dr. Michael Taylor used to have an office in New Bedford.

      After Friday's plea, a judge sentenced him to two and a half years, suspended for a probation period of five years.

      Under the probation, Taylor has to permanently give up his license to practice medicine.

      He also has to pay more than 98-hundred dollars in restitution to MassHealth, the state's medicaid program.
