A wealthy drug company founder was convicted on Thursday of directing a scheme to bribe doctors across the country to prescribe a highly addictive fentanyl spray.

John Kapoor, the founder and former chairman of Insys Therapeutics, was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy after 15 days of deliberations in a trial that put a spotlight on the federal government's efforts to go after those it views as responsible for fueling the deadly opioid crisis.

Four other former employees of the Chandler, Arizona-based company were also convicted.

The company's former national director of sales, Richard M. Simon, regional sales directors, Sunrise Lee and Joseph A. Rowan, and former Vice President of Managed Markets, Michael J. Gurry, were all found guilty in the scheme.
