SHRINK GETS SHRUNK: FIRST STATE DRUG CHARGES, NOW FEDERAL DRUG CHARGES FOR DR. JORDAN NOAH STAMPER, 51, OF COAL RUN VILLAGE, KY., BOTH CONNECTED TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES RAIDING OF HIS BUSINESS PRACTICE OFFICE IN DECEMBER 2022.
A Pikeville psychiatrist already charged with drug trafficking after federal authorities raided his office back in December, is now under a federal indictment as well.
Dr. Jason Noah Stamper, 51, of Coal Run Village, KY., was charged in Pike County District Court with trafficking and possession of meth and heroin, and possession of drug paraphernalia at his business practice back on December 15, 2022.
During the drug raid at the office, officers discovered a bag believed to contain methamphetamine, along with the prescription drug Vyvanse, and drug trafficking paraphernalia.
On Thursday evening, May 25, a federal grand jury in Pikeville, Ky. charged him with distributing amphetamine.
The indictment alleges Jordan Stamper distributed the drug on four occasions from June to September 2022, “outside the scope of professional practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose.” Each charge carries a maximum potential sentence of 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines if Jordan Stamper is convicted.
Jordan Noah Stamper is currently out on a $20,000 bond-10% full cash; for the Pike County case, but federal prosecutors from the U.S. Assistant Attorney-Eastern District Office have asked a U.S. district federal judge to issue an arrest warrant for Jordan Stamper.
