GREENEVILLE — As expected, a doctor at the center of a “misbranded” medication scandal at a local cancer treatment center pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Greeneville, and afterward one of his attorneys said “the whole story” in the case will soon be provided.

Dr. William Kincaid, one of three physicians in the partnership that was McLeod Blood and Cancer Center in Johnson City, entered a plea to “receiving in interstate commerce a misbranded drug with intent to defraud or mislead” Tuesday morning before Judge Ronnie Greer.

A sentencing hearing was set for June 3. Kincaid, 67, faces up to three years in prison, a fine up to $250,000, supervised release up to a year and probation up to five years.
