A doctor at the center of a "misbranded" medication scandal that effectively shut down one of the area’s most renowned cancer treatment centers will plead guilty in U.S. District Court in Greeneville next week on a related charge.

Dr. William Kincaid, one of three physicians in the partnership that was McLeod Blood and Cancer Center, will enter a guilty plea to "receiving in interstate commerce a misbranded drug with intent to defraud or mislead," according to documents obtained from federal court.

In November, an "information" document was filed that detailed what Kincaid is accused of, and there was a plea agreement hearing scheduled. But only recently was the actual plea agreement document accessible on the court’s public access website.
