Indicted doctor turns himself in

Milton Brindley, the Augusta doctor who was indicted last week by a federal grand jury in London on charges that he traded narcotics for sex and money, turned himself in Monday, according the U.S. Attorney's Office in Lexington.

Brindley was released on $100,000 bond. He is charged conspiring with others to improperly prescribe hydrocodone and oxycodone pills, as well as other controlled substances. Brindley made nearly $600,000, the indictment said.

The prescriptions were filled at a pharmacy in Kenton County, then distributed in Eastern Kentucky and elsewhere, the indictment said.

A pretrial conference has been scheduled for Jan. 30.
