In short, the Fosus clearly knew that in filling the Coralpines prescriptions, they were violating the CSA. Under Agency precedent, where, as here, the Government has established its prima facie case, the burden shifts to the Respondent to demonstrate why the continuation of its registration is consistent with the public interest. See, e.g., Medicine Shoppe, 73 FR at 387. An essential element of this showing is that the registrant and its principals accept responsibility for their misconduct by acknowledging their wrongdoing. Id.; see also Jackson, 72 FR at 23853; Kennedy, 71 FR at 35709. Here, however, Mr. Fosu did not testify and Mrs. Fosu invoked her Fifth Amendment privilege. I therefore hold that the Fosus (and Respondent) have failed to accept responsibility for their misconduct. Because Respondent has failed to rebut the Government’s prima facie case, I further conclude that its registration should be revoked and that any pending application should be denied. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as by 28 CFR 0.100(b) and 0.104, I order that DEA Certificate of Registration, BS9433828, issued to Sun & Lake Pharmacy, Inc., be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending applications of Sun & Lake Pharmacy, Inc., to renew or modify its registration, be, and they hereby are, denied. This Order is effective June 1, 2011. Dated: April 22, 2011. Michele M. Leonhart, Administrator.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Council of Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500– 1508), and the Department of Justice procedures for implementing NEPA (28 CFR 61), the BOP published an EA on January 28, 2011 which described the potential environmental and other impacts associated with the proposed action to award a contract to one or more private correctional contractors to house a population of approximately 3,000 federal, low-security, adult male inmates that are primarily criminal aliens with one year or less to serve on their sentences.

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons 
(BOP) announces the availability of the Environmental Assessment (EA) 
prepared for the proposed contract to secure additional inmate bed 
space for the BOP's growing inmate population.
    As part of this action, known as the Short Term Sentences 
Acquisition procurement, the BOP has identified a specific requirement 
to confine an aggregate population of approximately 3,000 low-security 
adult male inmates (with one year or less remaining to serve) that are 
primarily criminal aliens. The BOP is seeking to accommodate the 
growing federal inmate population by requesting additional contract 
beds.
    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 
1969, the Council of Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 
1500-1508), and the Department of Justice procedures for implementing 
NEPA (28 CFR 61), the BOP published an EA on January 28, 2011 which 
described the potential environmental and other impacts associated with 
the proposed action to award a contract to one or more private 
correctional contractors to house a population of approximately 3,000 
federal, low-security, adult male inmates that are primarily criminal 
aliens with one year or less to serve on their sentences. Copies of the 
EA were distributed to federal, state, regional and local officials, 
agencies, organizations and the public. Publication of the EA initiated 
a public comment period lasting no less than 30 days and during that 
comment period, which ended on February 28, 2011, comments were 
received from several government agencies and a member of the public.
    With the passage of time since the EA was first published, and 
following a thorough review of all public comments and environmental 
documentation amassed in support of the proposed action, the BOP 
determined that it was appropriate and in the best interests of the 
public to prepare a new EA. This new EA incorporates additional 
information prepared in response to public comments received by the BOP 
along with the most current information regarding the alternative 
facilities. The BOP's EA evaluates the potential environmental 
consequences of three action alternatives and the No Action 
Alternative. Natural, cultural, and socioeconomic resource impacts 
associated with the implementation of the proposed action at each of 
the alternative locations were analyzed to determine how these 
resources may be affected by the proposed action.
    The alternatives considered in the EA include the use of the 
following privately-owned and operated facilities: Diamondback 
Correctional Center, Watonga, Oklahoma; Great Plains Correctional 
Facility, Hinton, Oklahoma; and Willacy County Processing Center, 
Raymondville, Texas. The EA also includes information concerning the 
BOP's preferred alternative. Inmates housed in one or more of these 
facilities would be primarily criminal aliens who have less than one 
year remaining to serve of their sentences.
