KOKOMO, Ind. - A doctor accused of mishandling prescriptions for painkillers and other drugs at the central Indiana clinics he operated has been sentenced to two years in prison.
Don Wagoner, 78, pleaded guilty in May to seven felony counts.
Wagoner, his wife and two other doctors were arrested last year on narcotics charges connected to clinics in Kokomo and the nearby town of Burlington.
State officials said at least a dozen patients died from drug-related complications.
As part of his plea deal, Wagoner will also lose his medical license and can never practice medicine in the United States again.
