Anderson expected to appeal sentence


Nearly five years from the date a joint investigation in Marietta netted a federal raid on the city’s brick streets, a former local physician was sentenced to prison this month.

On Feb. 4, 2016, the combined forces of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the State of Ohio Medical Board, Marietta Police and Washington County Sheriff’s Office, blocked traffic in the 100-block of Putnam Street and executed a search warrant on two downtown offices in that block.

The offices were that of, now, 63-year-old Dr. Roger Anderson.
