No casinos for alleged Ohio pill mill operators

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A judge has pulled the plug on casino trips by an Ohio couple accused of hiding income while facing federal charges of illegally distributing prescription pain pills in southern Ohio.

U.S. District Judge Sandra Beckwith in Cincinnati also is prohibiting Nancy and Lester Sadler from working in any kind of medical clinic while free on bond.

The government has moved to revoke the couple's bond on the grounds they received taxpayer-funded defense attorneys while earning thousands of dollars a week at a Columbus pain clinic.

Federal prosecutors also say the Sadlers frequently spent thousands of dollars at two Indiana casinos.

Beckwith ordered the couple to stop going to casinos and traveling out of state except for their son's wedding next month.
