INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An Indianapolis doctor was sentenced on Tuesday for illegally prescribing painkillers.

Dr. Segun Rasaki was sentenced to 10 years after pleading guilty to two counts of dealing in a controlled substance. He also received two years of probation in this case.

He pleaded guilty back in April. Officials say the doctor was writing prescriptions to multiple patients, even after his right to do so had been suspended.

In 2012, Dr. Rasaki was convicted of sexual battery and battery against two patients. He was given a one year sentence for that conviction.

Officials say the sentence handed down on Tuesday will run consecutive to his previous sentence for the sexual battery case. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
