Christensen to be sentenced in February
HAMILTON, Mont. —
A sentencing date has been set for the Florence doctor convicted in a high profile felony drug case.
Dr. Chris Christensen will be sentenced in Ravalli County District Court February 2.
In November, a jury convicted Christensen of 22 felony drug charges for causing the deaths of two patients under his care, endangering the lives of nine other patients and distributing dangerous drugs.
His clinic in Florence was raided in 2014.
Ravalli County Attorney Bill Fulbright said the "range is wide" as to what Christensen's sentence could be.
He said the judge could sentence the doctor to as many as 400 years or to no prison time at all.
