Oct. 07, 2012 @ 06:36 PM

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — A Florida physician is 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 Tuesday in federal court in Ashland on charges of 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. According to the indictment, Robinson was the owner of two pain management clinics, Florida Global Medical in Plantation, Fla., where Rodriguiz-Iznaga worked, and Ohio Pain Relief Center in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Muldoon and Robinson have been arraigned and have entered not-guilty pleas.
