(NYT66) ABINGDON, Va. -- July 19, 2007 -- OYCONTIN-SENTENCE -- Howard R. Udell, left, Purdue Pharma's top lawyer; Dr. Paul Goldenheim, the former medical director; and Michael Friedman, the chief executive, outside the Western District of Virginia Federal Courthouse in Abingdon, Virginia on Thursday, May 10, 2007. A federal judge will decide on Friday the fate of three top executives of the drug company that makes the painkiller OxyContin, weighing their lawyers' request for leniency against demands for prison sentences from families of some overdose victims. Judge James P. Jones of Federal District Court is expected to decide whether to accept criminal plea agreements reached in May between federal prosecutors and the drug maker, Purdue Pharma of Stamford, Conn., and three of its current and former executives.
