Feds Charge Former Rite Aid Exec in $5.7M Kickback Scheme

No Comment 43 Views

Another former Rite Aid executive has been charged by the feds with scamming the drug store giant in a $5.7 million kick-back scheme that lasted 22 years.

James W. Pilsner, 60, of Harrisburg, Rite Aid’s ex-vice president for advertising, already has a tentative agreement to plead guilty to wire fraud and tax evasion charges, counts that will send him to federal prison.

That plea agreement won’t be final unless it is approved by U.S. Middle District Judge John E. Jones III.

Accused along with Pilsner are two Georgia businessmen, Larry Nuckols and Vance Taylor, owners of Nuvision Inc. of Atlanta, U.S. Attorney David Freed said Friday. He said Pilsner, Nuckols, 69, and Taylor, 71, ran the con against Rite aid from 1995 until last year.
