Doctor’s sentencing postponed

New date April 25 in federal court for man charged with making child porn

LONDON — The sentencing for a Manchester doctor who admitted he produced child pornography last year has been postponed until next month.

Dr. Kishore Kumar Jadhav was to be sentenced today (Thursday) in U.S. District Court in London, but the sentencing was postponed.

That’s because Jadhav’s attorney, R. Burl McCoy, is scheduled to be out of state handling another legal matter Thursday. In addition, the government’s prosecutor, Jason Denney, also has a conflicting obligation Thursday.

Instead, the sentencing will be at 11 a.m. April 25 at the federal courthouse in London.

Jadhav, 50, lives in London but practices medicine in Manchester.

According to a plea agreement filed Sept. 27, Jadhav admitted to producing pornography involving a 14-year-old Laurel County girl.

During a re-arraignment last September, Jadhav pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography as part of a plea agreement that calls for the dismissal of three other counts of the same charge.

When he pleaded guilty, Jadhav admitted he visited a Laurel County girl March 14, 2012, at her home. Court documents said Jadhav told the girl he would pay her to participate in a “medical study involving female sexual stimulation.” After having the girl write personal information on a piece of paper and answer several medical questions, Jadhav asked the girl to disrobe and perform a sex act, which she did. Jadhav also touched the girl.

According to court documents, Jadhav recorded three video clips of the acts with his cell phone. He paid the girl $300 and told her not to tell anyone about the study.

On April 3, federal law enforcement officials searched Jadhav and his office and found video clips involving the girl as well as sexually-explicit clips involving other minors.

Jadhav was arrested by federal authorities April 20, and remains in federal custody. He was indicted in May for producing child pornography. The FBI and Kentucky State Police conducted the investigation preceding the indictment.

Jadhav could face a sentence of 15-30 years, a fine of up to $250,000 and suspended release for at least five years. The plea agreement also calls for him to pay restitution to his victims, as well as forfeit assets including certain equipment from Kishore Internal Medicine, about $9,980 and a 2009 Cadillac CTS-V automobile.

Once he’s released from prison, Jadhav will have to register as a sex offender.
