Durham responds to reports of 2013 prescription investigation

State Rep. Jeremy Durham responded to media reports this week about an investigation after a pharmacist questioned the validity of his prescriptions in 2013.

According to the Associated Press, an investigation was launched after a pharmacist questioned whether a date on a prescription had been altered. When the case was presented to the grand jury in Williamson County, Durham wasn’t indicted.

Glenn Funk, who now is Davidson County District Attorney, confirmed that he would have become Durham’s defense attorney had the case gone further in the court system back in January 2014.

“This situation is from two and a half years ago and was fully vetted by 12 Williamson County citizens who quickly agreed that nothing illegal occurred,” Durham said in a prepared statement. “I possessed two additional valid and current prescriptions for the same medication and dosage in question and never attempted to obtain anything I had not been prescribed by a doctor.”

Durham, of Franklin, is the House Majority Whip.
