Florida Physician Faces Federal Drug Charges in Kentucky
A Florida physician will be scheduled to be arraigned this week in federal court in Kentucky for charges that she engaged in a conspiracy with two men to illegally distribute prescription narcotics in northeastern Kentucky.
The Independent reports that Dr. Clara S. Rodriguez-Iznaga's arraignment is scheduled for October ninth in federal court in Ashland. She is charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and conspiracy to commit money-laundering. The indictment also charges William James Muldoon Jr. and Jody Robinson with the same charges. Prosecutors says Robinson was the owner of pain management clinics located in Plantation, Florida and Portsmouth, Ohio.
Muldoon and Robinson have already been arraigned and have entered not-guilty pleas.
