KELO Court Two

A former Aberdeen doctor accused of illegally distributing opioids says he will plead guilty in federal court.

Dr. Troy Adolfson plans to enter a guilty plea to one count of distribution of a controlled substance.

Authorities say Adolfson wrote prescriptions for the painkiller oxycodone, which were filled by a cohort and two others and then returned to him in exchange for a $50 tip and some of the pills.

Adolfson was employed at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital as a radiation oncologist from October 2014 through April 2017.

A hearing is set for Nov. 5 in Aberdeen.
