Chattanooga doctor indicted on federal health care fraud, money laundering and tax evasion

Chattanooga doctor Ihsaan al-Amin, also known as Robert O'Neil Robinson, Jr., was arraigned this afternoon in federal court on charges of health care fraud, money laundering and tax evasion.

Al-Amin faces up to 20 years on the most serious charges. FBI and IRS investigators allege through an indictment filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney John MacCoon that he was running a "pill mill" out of his local office for 2009 and 2010.

Agents arrested al-Amin this morning.

U.S. Magistrate Susan Lee scheduled a trial date for Aug. 6.
