Doctor sentenced after drug charge guilty plea

INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis doctor who pleaded guilty to drug charges will spend two years behind bars, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Dr. Segun Rasaki was charged in August 2013 following a nearly four-year investigation by state and federal authorities prompted by calls from concerned pharmacists.

Rasaki prescribed controlled substances -- including Phenobarbital, Zutripro and Dronabinol -- after his licenses were suspended by the Drug Enforcement Administration, prompting felony charges of dealing in controlled substances.

Rasaki pleaded guilty to the charges in April 2014, and he was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years, two years executed.

Rasaki was previously sentenced to one year in jail in 2012 following his conviction on charges of sexual battery against two patients.
