Former Savannah psychiatrist William George Ellien today was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for his guilty plea for unlawful distribution of addictive prescription drugs to former patients.
Ellien, 57, must also serve a 3-year supervised release after completing his custody term and must surrender all medical licenses he still holds.
Federal prosecutors said Ellien exchanged drug prescriptions for sex with former patients he met in strip clubs between 2009 and 2012.
