AKRON, Ohio- An Akron doctor is accused of exchanging prescriptions for sexual favors.

Gregory Ingram, who was an emergency room doctor at Akron General Medical Center, was indicted on 48 counts on Thursday.

According to the indictment, Ingram wrote 46 prescriptions for oxycodone products for 11 different patients between November 2012 and October 2014. He met many of these people at strip clubs, and exchanged the scripts for money or sex acts, the indictment said.

Federal investigators also accuse him of writing fraudulent prescriptions for Tramadol, a narcotic-like pain reliever, and Diazepam, which is used to treat anxiety, muscle spasms and alcohol withdrawal.

Ingram’s information has been removed from Akron General’s website.
