New details on doctor accused of making child porn

Federal agents have charged a Kentucky doctor with making child pornography.

Dr. Kishore Jadhav

Dr. Kishore Jadav has practiced medicine in Manchester for years, seeing patients like Denise Smith and Elmer Wagers. “Total shock and chaos. I mean I don’t believe anything like this. He’s an upstanding doctor,” said Smith Monday in hearing the allegations against her family physician.

Yet Dr. Jadav is now in the Laurel County Detention Center accused of producing child pornography. “I think they set him up,” said Wagers.

Kentucky State Police say their investigation started in March from a complaint they received but it was quickly forwarded to federal authorities once they realized how serious the allegations were.

Authorities were not available to comment on the specific allegations but police say they have evidence that Dr. Jadhav produced pornography involving a minor.

“He’s a good doctor. A real good doctor. He checked you out good and gave you what you need. If you needed medicine, he gave it to you,” said Wagers.

The doctor’s office is located just below Manchester Memorial Hospital and people we spoke with say he performed numerous procedures there.

A receptionist at his office was overheard telling patients they can’t comment on the allegations but that his office remains open. But people question what the future will bring to his practice.

As of know Dr. Jadav only faces one count of the sexual abuse charge, but both police and the FBI say they’re trying to determine if they are additional victims.
