GREER, S.C. -

Daniel H. Jebens pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. He'll be sentenced once the judge reviews the U.S. Probation Office's presentence report.

Evidence presented at the hearing shows the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Greer Police Department wired a confidential informant with video and audio, and had that person visit Dr. Jebens. During the visit, investigators say Jebens wrote the informant a prescription for Roxicodone, had him fill it, then bought the pills from him for $600. Court documents also showed Jebens asked the informant if his wife had prescription painkillers he could buy.

Based on that information, the DEA and police searched Jeben's office. Agents say Jebens admitted to prescribing controlled substances for patients who did not really need them. 

Jebens faces up to 20 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine plus a special assessment of $100.
