Inman Seeks Opioid Treatment

By Beth Milligan | June 7, 2019

State Representative Larry Inman (R-Williamsburg) is seeking out “evaluation and treatment for the long-term use of opioid prescription pain medications,” according to a statement released through his attorney Thursday.

The statement indicates opioids were prescribed to Inman “as a result of a number of major surgeries” he has undergone over the last several years. Inman began seeking treatment for his usage of opioids on June 1, according to the statement. Inman and his physicians will “continue to evaluate (Inman’s) ability to effectively serve his constituency as his treatment progresses,” the statement concludes.

The announcement comes on the heels of a resolution introduced by House Speaker Lee Chatfield this week calling for Inman to resign due to felony charges filed against Inman last month for attempted bribery, extortion, and lying to an FBI agent. Inman so far has resisted calls to resign his position. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on May 28 and was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
