Dr. Perales indicted on federal drug charges

Posted by wlpo on November 8, 2013

          Three months after his medical clinic in Peru was raided by police officers and FBI agents, Dr. Constantino Perales is facing federal drug charges.

          Perales was arrested in August on state charges and was being held in the La Salle County Jail until Friday morning when he was taken to Chicago.  He was indicted Wednesday.  He’s accused of illegally giving Oxycodone and Alprazolam to three patients on 17 occasions between May 2012 and August 2013.

           Perales was scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sidney I. Schenkier Friday afternoon.

Each of the 17 counts against him carries up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
