State prosecutors say a New Jersey physician who also serves on his town’s governing body has been charged with selling prescriptions for highly addictive painkillers to people he never treated or examined.

Vincent Esposito of Madison was arrested Thursday after a search warrant was executed at his medical office in the Morris County town. He was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and conspiracy.

In announcing the arrest Friday, prosecutors said the 54-year-old Esposito wrote prescriptions for confidential informants and undercover DEA agents in exchange for cash on at least eight occasions. And, in each instance, they say Esposito failed to perform any medical exam prior to providing the prescriptions.

Prosecutors say Esposito typically charged $90 for a 120-pill prescription.

A call to Esposito’s home went unanswered Friday.
