By  | 

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - It appears a former Hazard doctor and his wife will stay in prison.

"Ace" Chaney was convicted on more than 150 charges that included improper prescribing and billing Medicare and Medicaid for unnecessary tests between March 2006 and October 2014.

Chaney's wife, Lesa Chaney, was convicted with him.

The two operated Ace Clinique of Medicine. Both were sentenced to several years in prison in 2017.

They appealed based on four issues, including sufficiency of evidence and jury misconduct.

The 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court's judgment on everything Thursday.
