Addiction doctor pleads guilty to importation of a controlled substance

The former director of Horizon Health and Renaissance Addiction Services pleaded guilty Friday before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo to importation of a controlled substance, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Dr. Torin Finver, 55, of Hamburg, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced May 30.

Prosecutors said that on Nov. 21, 2018, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers examined a parcel from Germany that arrived at a Post Office in Chicago and was addressed to T Finver and a Hamburg address.

The sender information was fictitious and the package tested positive for cocaine. Two similar packages address to Finver, that were sent from California, were located by U.S. postal inspectors in Rochester.

One tested positive for heroin and the other contained cocaine, prosecutors said.

On Dec. 15, 2018, postal inspectors discovered a fourth package addressed to Finver in Hamburg. A controlled delivery was made to Finver at his residence, and he was arrested at the scene.
