Dr. Marvin Bonham accused of running drug exchange
On October 16, 2012, Dr. Marvin Bonham of Los Gatos was arrested and accused of supplying drugs to minors and trading prescription drugs for cash. Dr. Marvin Bonham was the medical director of the Valley Health Plan, Health and Hospital System of Santa Clara County. He worked for Santa Clara County for almost five years. When authorities went to search his Los Gatos hills home on October 3, 2012, they found weapons, burnt foils that are used to smoke Oxycontin, and the straws. He was growing marijuana under the house. There was marijuana plants hanging and drying in the garage. His roommate James Schneider 32 was arrested. Dr. Marvin Bonham wrote over 1,000 pills of Oxycontin for James Schneider. Dr. Marvin Bonham is facing charges of possession of methamphetamine for sale, prescribing without legitimate medical purpose, prescribing to addicts, possession of psilocybin mushrooms, possession of ecstasy and possession of marijuana for sale. Dr. Bonham will be arraigned on October 18, 2012 in San Jose Superior Court. He could face 25 years in prison if convicted.
I think Marvin Bonham should get the maximum sentence. He has the nerve to call himself a doctor. First of all he took an oath to do no harm. Well he sure threw that oath is out the window. Marvin Bonham, yes I’m not putting doctor in front of your name because you don’t deserve it shame on you.
