‘Candy Man’ Getting Sweet Deal

Old Saybrook Doctor Scott Houghton was given the title “The Candy Man” for prescribing drugs to addicts who would allegedly pay him cash in return.

Yesterday, he plead guilty to four of 47 charges against him, and while the prosecution is looking to sentence him to 10 years in prison, suspended after four years, the judge says he’s leaning toward letting “The Candy Man” off the hook, suspending his entire prison sentence.

The original 47 charges added up to 704 years in prison.
