 The Georgetown News-Graphic is reporting that doctors are defending several alleged pill-mill clinics, operated by federally-indicted Ernest William Singleton, of Willisburg. 

One doctor who worked at Singleton’s clinic in Georgetown told the News-Graphic: “We felt like we were taking pretty good care of our patients ... We were trying to be very careful.”   

Singleton owned clinics in Georgetown and Dry Ridge, but closed the clinics last fall. He was indicted on two federal conspiracy charges related to the clinic earlier this month. He remains in the Fayette County Detention Center in Lexington, where he remains under a federal investigation.
