A Manhattan doctor has pleaded guilty to selling prescriptions for powerful narcotic painkillers to a drug trafficking organization.
The city's special narcotics prosecutor says 75-year-old Dr. Robert Gibbs is expected to get five years probation and must also forfeit about $48,000 in illegal profits.
Gibbs has also agreed to surrender his medical license.
He's currently out on $50,000 bail pending his sentence next month.
Charges are still pending against Ronald Vaughan, the alleged leader of the drug trafficking organization accused of getting painkiller prescriptions from Gibbs.
