Michael Schuster

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A detention hearing is scheduled to resume in federal court in Topeka in the case of a Kansas doctor indicted on four charges of illegal distribution of drugs from his Manhattan clinic.

The hearing for 53-year-old Michael P. Schuster will continue Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gary Sebelius. The hearing will determine whether Schuster should be held by the U.S. Marshal Service or be released on bail.

A grand jury returned an indictment May 1 charging Schuster with one count each of conspiracy to illegally distribute controlled substances, drug distribution, unlawfully distributing drugs to a person under 21 years old and using and maintaining a premise for drug distribution. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of money and property linked to the crimes.
