An Oklahoma City abortion doctor was charged Thursday with racketeering — a felony offense punishable by at least 10 years in prison.
Dr. Naresh G. Patel, 62, also was charged with three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses.
Patel was arrested Dec. 9 at his Warr Acres clinic after an undercover fraud investigation. The clinic, Outpatient Services for Women, has not reopened since his arrest.
He is accused of providing abortion-inducing drugs to three female undercover investigators who posed as patients. Each paid the clinic $620.
