WYMT News report

A physician who owned a Hazard pain clinic has pleaded guilty to money laundering.

Dusty Chaney said in a plea agreement that he deliberately ignored another doctor’s improper prescribing at Clarion Health and Wellness LLC.

The plea agreement said Chaney opened Clarion in late 2010 with the intent of running a legitimate clinic, but he could not recruit qualified doctors. Chaney acknowledged he did not pay close enough attention to activities at the clinic, which he sold in 2012.

Chaney entered his guilty plea on Tuesday. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years, but his sentence will likely be far less. He also agreed to forfeit $40,000 to the government.
