Doctor indicted

Charged for producing explicit photos of children

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Just over three weeks since his arrest for sex abuse, a physician who lives in London but practices medicine in Manchester was indicted by a federal grand jury.

This charge accuses Dr. Kishore Kumar Jadhav of producing child pornography by using three different minor-age children to “engage in explicit sexual conduct” so he could produce images of those actions. The incidents allegedly took place on two different occasions in Laurel County this year and one in February 2010 in Clay County.

The indictment also accuses Jadhav of possessing child pornography, which was located in Jadhav’s Manchester office. Federal agents claim Jadhav’s vehicle, computer equipment and corporate assets be forfeited to the government because those items were involved in the crimes.

Jadhav had reportedly been the subject of an investigation by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and the Kentucky State Police since March 29 of this year. On April 20, he was taken into custody by federal authorities and has remained in custody since that time.

Jadhav specializes in internal medicine and practices at Manchester Memorial Hospital.

Kerry B. Harvey, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of

Kentucky, Special Agent in Charge Perrye K. Turner, Federal Bureau of

Investigation, and Rodney Brewer, Commissioner of the Kentucky State Police, jointly made the announcement today after a federal grand jury in Covington returned the indictment.

If convicted, Jadhav could face a minimum of 15 years to a maximum of 40 years in prison for each count of the indictment.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and does imply guilt or innocence.
