New charges for pain clinic owner

Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- The man behind a shutdown Jeffersonville pain clinic is now facing charges in Kentucky.

44-year-old Ernest William Singleton was indicted for prescription drug and money laundering conspiracies.

Once Kentucky state laws changed requiring clinic owners be licensed physicians, Singleton opened a center in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

He once owned several pain management centers in Kentucky. If convicted, Singleton faces a maximum of 20 years in prison on each count.

Attorney General Jack Conway says, "I think HB1 is working. I know there's a lot of talk about tweaking it in this current legislative session, but there are signs that we're making a dent in the prescription pain killer epidemic in the Commonwealth of Kentucky."
