London Physician Indicted for Producing Child Pornography
|U.S. Attorney’s Office May 10, 2012|
COVINGTON—A physician who lives in London, Kentucky was indicted today on child pornography charges. Dr. Kishore Kumar Jadhav, 50, was indicted for producing child pornography. Dr. Jadhav practices medicine in Manchester, Kentucky.
The indictment alleges that Jadhav used three different minors to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing images of that conduct. The alleged events occurred in Laurel County twice in March 2012 and in Clay county in February 2010. The indictment also charges Jadhav with possession of child pornography on April 3, 2012, the day that federal agents executed a search warrant at his Manchester office. The indictment also alleges that Jadhav’s vehicle, computer equipment, and corporate assets were used to facilitate the crime and should be forfeited to the government.
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.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the FBI and KSP.
Dr. Jadhav was arrested by federal authorities on April 20, 2012 and remains in federal custody. His next appearance before the United States District Court has not yet been set. If convicted, Jadhav faces a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 40 years in prison on each Production count. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of sentences.
The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only, and that person is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
