TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas district attorney says he doesn't expect to file criminal charges against a former abortion provider who discarded patients' private medical records in a recycling bin outside a school in the Kansas City area.

But Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said Tuesday his office will examine whether Krishna Rajanna's actions violated state consumer protection laws, which are enforced through civil lawsuits.

Howe also said he may contact federal officials about potential violations of patient privacy laws.
Rajanna confirmed that he discarded hundreds of patients'
records in a recycling bin outside an elementary school blocks from
his home in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, believing the
bin would be emptied quickly. He did not immediately return a
telephone message Tuesday afternoon, seeking a response to Howe's comments.
