Louis Carr, 42, of Niagara Falls, the former front desk administrator at a Buffalo area dental office, was spared a federal prison term and was placed on probation for two years by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara Wednesday on his conviction for selling about 75 forged prescriptions for hydrocodone last year for $50 to $60 apiece.

Louis Carr used dentist’s signature stamp

Assistant U.S. Attorney George C. Burgasser said Carr between March 2014 and last September created the forged prescriptions using a stamp with a dentist’s signature. He printed them on the office computer system and then deleted all of them. He was nabbed by an investigation conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the prosecutor said.
