WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A former Kansas doctor out on supervised release for unlawfully prescribing drugs is now accused of using a gun to pay a bail bondsman.
Fifty-seven-year-old Lawrence M. Simons was being held Monday on one federal count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
Simons, of Wichita, once worked at Schneider Medical Clinic in Haysville. He was sentenced in January 2010 to two years in prison followed by three years' probation for unlawfully distributing controlled substances.
Simons is now accused of giving a pistol as partial payment to a bondsman for getting him out of jail in a domestic case involving a criminal threat.
His attorney in the threat case did not immediately return a message. He does not yet have an attorney in the federal case.
