A Colorado-based doctor is facing criminal charges, after prescribing medication over the Internet to a Bay Area teen who committed suicide.

Christian Hageseth is accused of practicing medicine without a license by prescribing Prozac to John McKay, a student at Stanford. In 2005, McKay committed suicide after buying the anti-depressant drug Prozac from an online pharmacy.

Hageseth’s attorney told CBS 5 his client didn’t break any California laws because he was never in California. CBS 5 Legal Analyst LaDoris Cordell believes this case is the first of its kind, and could lead to major changes.
