The U.S. Attorney for New Jersey says 52-year-old Jacqueline LoPresti of Fair Haven pleaded guilty Monday to 11 counts of distribution of oxycodone, as well as one count of distribution conspiracy.

LoPresti, an osteopath with an office in Little Silver, was among 22 people charged in 2011 a ring that federal prosecutors say trafficked in and sold millions of dollars’ worth of  oxycodone tablets to people across the region.

LoPresti could face up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at her Jan. 30 sentencing.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says doctors charged in the alleged scheme illegally wrote more than 6,000 prescriptions for more than 500,000 oxycodone tablets between 2009 and 2010.
