UPDATE: Trial date set for former Lebanon doctors indicted on fraud, drug charges


A former Lebanon physician indicted last month on federal health care fraud and drug charges has been arraigned and his jury trial set.

Dwight Bailey waived his right to a speedy trial during the proceedings in U.S. District Court and was released after posting bond, according to court records obtained by News 5. His three week trial is set to begin July 16.

Bailey is facing five counts including conspiracy to commit health care fraud and illegal distribution of narcotics. Prosecutors accuse the former owner of two Lebanon clinics of continuing to prescribe Suboxone while a patient continued to abuse drugs. They also said Bailey bilked federal health care programs of $14,000.

Bailey's license was suspended by state medical officials in 2014. He was also ordered to pay the family of a former patient $3 million after a civil malpractice suit in 2015, court records show.
