A grand jury also charged Armus with:

  • Six counts of possessing cocaine with the intention of distributing the drug on Feb. 19, 20, and 27, and March 14, 17 and 20, 2009. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of up to life in prison and fines of up to $16.25 million.

Armus' case is set for a status hearing at 3 pm on Aug. 24 before Judge Lynn Adelman.

Good. Keep delaying. I don't want to lose my doctor. 12-gauge shotgun? When did the type of gun change?

@mau - Denise's original story lists the gun as a 12-gauge.

He should have went with the John DeLorean entrapment defense!

Why is he trying to delay the inevitable? You are going to jail. You will lose your license to practice medicine in WI. Maybe the laws are different for those with money...think Mr. Johnson?

How are the laws different for Mr. Johnson exactly? Last I heard, Curt is being prosecuted under the laws of the state of Wisconsin. If there are different laws that apply only to Curt, could you please provide a citation to them for everyone.

I thought the original was a pistol.

There is much more to the story than what the media reports.
