Purdu pharmacy settles OxContin casePurdue Pharma, the company whose OxyContin painkiller drove a nationwide opioid epidemic, has agreed to plead guilty to federal criminal charges as part of a settlement with the government that includes fines of more than $8 billion, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.

The company, according to the agreement, will plead guilty to fraud and violations of the federal kickback laws. The criminal charges do not, however, absolve the company's owners, the Sackler family, of future criminal liability, federal authorities said.

The settlement is the highest-profile display yet of the federal government seeking to hold a major drugmaker responsible for an opioid addiction and overdose crisis linked to more than 470,000 deaths in the country since 2000.

TVNL Comment.  No one will go to prison.  The Sackler family and the higher ups at Purdu are responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans.  They will pay a fine and go on with their lives.  Where is justice?
