Doctor aka ‘Candy Man’ tied to 68 overdose deaths is found guilty

Image: Dr. Stephen SchneiderA federal jury on Thursday found Dr. Stephen Schneider and his wife guilty of illegally prescribing painkillers to dozens of patients who later died.

If you lived in Wichita, Kansas and wanted prescription painkillers all you had to do was see the “Candy Man,” Dr. Stephen Schneider (shown here).

He was known as the “Candy Man” on the streets because it was so easy to get powerful painkillers from him with practically no questions asked – other than cursory on-the-spot examinations. Now, he and his wife, are paying the piper for their scheming that has caused dozens of deaths.
