MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A Manitowoc doctor is charged in federal court with drug trafficking.

A grand jury this week indicted Dr. Charles Szyman on 19 counts of unlawfully prescribing prescription drugs.

The indictment alleges Szyman knowingly distributed a controlled substance “outside of his professional practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose.”

The charges list 19 incidents between November 2013 and February 2015. The allegations include prescriptions for oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, amphetamine and hydrocodone.

A defense attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

Szyman’s medical license was suspended by the state. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/28TbE9u ) reports he is due for arraignment in federal court in Green Bay next Wednesday.
