Succasunna Dentist Pleads Guilty in Painkiller Scheme

A northern New Jersey dentist has admitted that he illegally dispensed a popular painkilling drug.

Ronald Jupiter (NJ Attorney General’s Office)

Succasunna dentist Ronald Jupiter entered his plea Monday as part of a deal with Morris County prosecutors. He faces up to three years in prison when he’s sentenced Aug. 2.

Prosecutors say Jupiter wrote prescriptions for Percocet for undercover officers who came to his office on multiple occasions. Jupiter never conducted a medical exam or checked for symptoms before prescribing the drug.

Authorities had said the 62-year-old Jupiter solicited the female undercover officers for sex. He was arrested at a hotel in Roxbury after allegedly setting up a liaison with the officers.

Jupiter also signed a consent order Monday that permits him to leave New Jersey for 30 days of in-patient sex addict treatment.
