Former GSK general counsel indicted for obstruction of justice

The Department of Justice is prosecuting a former associate general counsel of GlaxoSmithKline for obstruction of justice and falsification of documents.  The FDA was investigating GSK's promotion of certain drugs for off-label uses.  As alleged in the Indictment, "Stevens was the Vice President and attorney at [GSK], who was in charge of [GSK's] response to the FDA's inquiry and investigation."  In that capacity, the DoJ alleges Stevens thwarted the Government's investigation, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§2, 1512, & 1519.

Here is the Indictment.
