Ardmore pediatrician pleads guilty to prescribing violations

By  | 

ARDMORE, Okla. -- An Ardmore pediatrician has pleaded guilty to obtaining prescription medications by fraud.

According to the court clerk's office, Dr. Jerry Whatley appeared with his attorney Tuesday to plead guilty to two counts.

The district attorney dismissed three more charges in exchange for his plea.

Whatley was scheduled to appear in front of the medical licensure board earlier this month for a disciplinary hearing, but officials say that has been pushed back to June because Whatley was receiving treatment.

He'll be sentenced July 11th.
