What you need to know about restraining orders

A restraining order is an order from the court that is put in place to offer protection to a person who feels their safety is in jeopardy from someone who may cause them bodily harm. The restraining order, also referred to as a protection order, prohibits the person named in the order from having any contact with the issuer of the order.

A restraining order will prohibit the alleged attacker from coming within a certain distance of the victim. This will include all areas, including a home, workplace or any other places that the victim is frequently at.

Pediatric gastroenterologist faces drug distribution charges

Choosing a pediatrician is one of the most carefully considered decisions parents make. Parents put an enormous amount of trust in their children's doctors, because they literally put the children's lives in their hands. A parent likes to think the pediatrician he or she chose for his or her child is trustworthy, competent and well-educated. It is almost unthinkable for a pediatrician to be involved in drug activity, but one New Jersey doctor was recently arrested for drug distribution.

A 60-year-old pediatric gastroenterologist was arrested after visiting multiple New Jersey pharmacies with two other men in what police say was an attempt to collect a supply of several prescription drugs. According to reports, the trio went from pharmacy to pharmacy to gather a wide combination of medications, including Xanax, Adderall, gabapentin, oxycodone and other highly-controlled substances for nonmedical reasons. Reportedly, one of the men had successfully received a large supply of three different drugs before group was arrested.
