Keyport Man Sentenced for Role in Painkiller Ring

A Keyport man heads to prison for three years for his role in an illegal painkiller ring that operated out of Hudson County. State Attorney General Jeff Chiesa says 30-year-old Jack Kennedy learned his fate after confessing in March to Conspiracy to Commit Health Care Claims Fraud and numerous Distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance counts that including distributing drugs within 1000-feet of school property.

Kennedy’s 2009 arrest was part of a year-long investigation called Operation MedScam that snagged 13 people including two doctors and the confiscation of over $1 million dollars in proceeds. Chiesa says Kennedy sold 60 Percocet pills to a confidential informant in Jersey City, across the street from the Cross School.
