ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana doctor has pleaded guilty to several criminal charges stemming from a case in which authorities say he traded prescription drugs for sexual favors from patients.

Forty-six-year-old Dr. Eric Jones entered guilty pleas Monday in a Madison County court to seven charges, including illegally dealing in a controlled substance, perjury and voyeurism.

The Herald Bulletin reports his plea agreement with prosecutors limits his sentence to six years and that it will be served on in-home detention.

Jones was arrested in October 2014 at his general family practice in Pendleton, about 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis. State officials suspended his medical license, saying computer evidence was found that he was trading prescriptions and drugs in exchange for intercourse and other sexual favors.
