     The former owner of a central Kentucky pain clinic is being charged with prescription drug and money laundering.

    Attorney General Jack Conway says 44-year old Ernest Singleton is  charged with conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone and laundering those funds.

    Conway called it an 18-month investigation.

     He said search and seizure warrants were also executed today at other locations associated with singleton, including a Georgetown pharmacy.

    Conway says Singleton used to operate the Central Kentucky Bariatric and Pain Management Center in Georgetown before closing the clinic after the passing of House Bill One.

     House Bill One requires the owner of pain clinics to be licensed physicians.

     The Attorney General says this case sends a clear message that the Commonwealth fully intends to enforce that bill.

     Conway says if Singleton is convicted he could face a maximum of 20 years in prison for each count.
