Mistrial declared in healthcare fraud case against former Louisville doctor

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A mistrial is declared in the case of a former Louisville doctor accused of money laundering, healthcare fraud and prescribing pills that killed a patient.

George Kudmani is also accused of pocketing money from patients after giving them pain pills without an exam.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the jury was unable to reach a consensus on any of the charges.

Kudmani has admitted to writing prescriptions without an exam, because he knew the patients were in pain. He did not admit to taking any money.

The retired physician says he never prescribed pills for people who didn't need them or performed unnecessary procedures.

Kudmani has given up his medical license.
