LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The case is moving forward against a southern Indiana doctor charged with sexually abusing patients and defrauding the government, but that may change.
Paul Kelty was not in court this morning, but attorneys were.
The Corydon doctor faces two dozen charges, including sexual battery, theft and Medicaid fraud. His trial is expected to start in November, but that may change.
"Obviously with the amount of discovery that is left, that's not going to happen," said Otto Schalk, the Harrison County Prosecutor. "I foresee it's unlikely that will happen. I would see a continuance happening"
"We're pushing forward," he said.
Kelty has pleaded not guilty. If convicted of all charges, Kelty could spend the rest of his life in prison.
