He admitted that when he was not in his New York offices, clerical staff would partially fill out prescription forms for established patients in advance of the patient's office visit.
Those prescription forms would then be sent to Kuthuru in Las Vegas where he would sign the undated forms and return them to the clerical staff in New York. The clerical staff would then date the prescription form and give it to the patient on the day the patient visited the office. On other occasions, he signed blank, undated prescription forms and left them in his New York offices for issuance to patients there when he was in Las Vegas. United States District Court Judge David Hurd scheduled sentencing for May this year.
