TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A federal indictment charges a Tucson doctor with unlawfully distributing controlled substances and arranging to file false income tax returns.

The indictment alleges Dr. Robert C. Osborne distributed oxycodone without legitimate medical purposes and didn’t report $300,000 of taxable income over a five-year period.

The indictment also charged Osborne’s wife, Debra, with conspiracy and aiding and abetting the filing of false tax returns

The Osbornes did not immediately return a call for comment on the indictment issued Thursday by a grand jury and announced Monday by the IRS.

The Arizona Medical Board last summer revoked Robert Osborne’s license for unprofessional conduct. He’s challenging that action in court.

A lawyer representing Osborne in that matter didn’t immediate respond Monday to a call for comment.

The Osbornes face Dec. 24 arraignments.
