INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis doctor has pleaded guilty to charges he wrote illicit prescriptions for powerful painkillers after the Drug Enforcement Administration had suspended his authority to dispense controlled substances.
A sentencing hearing for Dr. Segun Rasaki on felony charges of dealing in a controlled substance was scheduled for May 27. His guilty plea was entered Tuesday in Marion County court.
The Marion County prosecutor's office says Rasaki was charged last August following a nearly four-year investigation by state and federal authorities prompted by calls from concerned pharmacists.
Rasaki's federal and state licenses were suspended in 2011 following an undercover investigation by the DEA.
Rasaki also was sentenced to one year in jail in 2012 following his conviction on charges of sexual battery against two patients.
