Family doctor pleads guilty for illegal prescriptions

October 2, 2007

A longtime Jefferson County family doctor has pleaded guilty. Dr. In Whan Yun was arrested earlier this year for illegally prescribing drugs for people who didn't need them. He pleaded guilty to one count and agreed to forfeit $200,000 to the government.

Dr. Yun could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He will be sentenced later.
