LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A former Louisville doctor faces up to 30 years in prison for prescribing pain pills to patients who did not need them.

After deliberating for 9 hours, a jury found George Kudmani guilty on 26 of 29 federal charges including unlawfully distributing and dispensing controlled substances and committing health care fraud on Thursday.

Federal authorities raided Kudmani's OBGYN office, located on Stonestreet Road in Valley Station, in 2012.
