WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has found a Kansas doctor guilty of criminal contempt of court for misbehaving during her first court appearance on charges related to a $7 million Army fraud and bribery indictment.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson sentenced 50-year-old Heidi Lynn Webster of Manhattan to 30 days in jail on top of any sentence she receives in a Texas case that charges her with medical equipment contract fraud.

Documents filed Monday contend Webster repeatedly ``spoke loudly'' and interrupted the judge during Friday's hearing in Topeka. The judge says Webster's outbursts prevented the court from advising her of the charges or her rights.

Her attorney did not immediately return a phone message.

Webster, a former Army physician, is the owner of MRI Resources Inc. and Pro Veteran Staffing Inc.
