INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A Carmel doctor has been found not guilty of charges stemming from a high-profile Drug Enforcement Administration raid involving several medical clinics.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Judge Steve Nation found that Dr. Larry Ley had met all of the standards for prescribing medicine for drug addiction after a bench trial in Hamilton County Superior Court.

Local police and DEA agents arrested doctors and staff affiliated with the Drug Opiate Recovery Network on charges of selling prescription painkillers to their patients in July 2014. Doctors in Delaware, Hamilton, Howard and Wayne counties had prescribed the medication for patients with drug addictions.

Howard County prosecutors are still pursuing charges against Ley and Dr. Luella Bangura. Wayne County is pursuing charges against Ley and Dr. Ronald Vierk.

The newspaper couldn’t reach officials with those prosecutor’s offices for comment.
