Doctor Pleads Guilty To Drug Distribution, Fraud

Last updated on Sunday, March 11, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington doctor has pleaded guilty to federal charges of unlawful drug distribution and health care fraud.

According to The Herald-Times, Dr. Kamal Tiwari pleaded guilty to two counts as part of an agreement with prosecutors late Friday in U.S. District court in Indianapolis.

A grand jury indicted the 60-year old Tiwari last year on 13 counts alleging that he prescribed narcotics when not medically necessary and defrauded insurers by performing unnecessary procedures.
