Manitowoc doctor indicted on drug trafficking chargesSubmitted: 06/24/2016
MANITOWOC - A Manitowoc doctor is charged in federal court with drug trafficking. A grand jury this week indicted Dr. Charles Szyman on 19 counts of unlawfully prescribing prescription drugs.

The indictment alleges Szyman knowingly distributed a controlled substance "outside of his professional practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose."

The charges list 19 incidents between November 2013 and February 2015. The allegations include prescriptions for oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, amphetamine, and hydrocodone.

A defense attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

Szyman's medical license was suspended by the state. WLUK-TV reports he is due for arraignment in federal court in Green Bay next Wednesday.
