A Minnesota doctor accused of illegally prescribing an opioid painkiller for Prince a week before the musician died from a fentanyl overdose has agreed to pay $30,000 to settle a federal civil violation.
The settlement between the U.S. Attorney for Minnesota and Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg comes as Carver County prosecutors are prepared to announce whether they'll file any criminal charges stemming from their two-year investigation into Prince's death. In one of the letters released Thursday, authorities said Schulenberg was not the target of a criminal investigation.
