U.S. District Judge Monti Belot sentenced Stephen Schneider, 57, to 30 years in prison, while his wife, Linda Schneider, 52, received a 33-year sentence for her extensive role in the crimes, The Wichita (Kan.) Eagle reported.
In June a jury found the Schneiders guilty of unlawful prescription of drugs, healthcare fraud and money-laundering in a scheme that prosecutors said led to 68 overdose deaths.
The pair were found guilty on five counts of illegally writing prescriptions and 11 counts of fraud; Stephen Schneider was found guilty on two counts of money-laundering, while Linda Schneider was found guilty on 15 counts of money-laundering.
Defense attorneys had requested the minimum sentence of 20 years, while prosecutors sought life behind bars.
