A doctor has been indicted on 19 federal counts that accuse him of receiving kickbacks on prescriptions of a highly addictive painkiller that were written for patients who didn't need the drug.

Jerrold Rosenberg of Jamestown, a clinical assistant professor at Brown University, pleaded not guilty Thursday.

He's the latest person to be caught up in a federal investigation in multiple states surrounding the Arizona-based drug manufacturer, Insys Therapeutics.

Former Insys executives are accused of leading a nationwide conspiracy to bribe doctors to prescribe large amounts of the company's fentanyl spray. They've pleaded not guilty in Massachusetts. Insys couldn't immediately be reached for comment on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Rosenberg refused patients' requests to switch drugs and received $180,000 in speaking fees.

They say his son earned commissions as an Insys sales representative.
