TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge is scheduled to get an update on the prosecution of a Kansas doctor charged with illegally dispensing prescription drugs.

Fifty-three-year-old Michael Schuster was indicted May 1 on multiple counts alleging he operated a so-called "pill mill" at his Manhattan pain clinic. Schuster remains held without bond.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson scheduled a status hearing Monday afternoon in federal court in Topeka. Prosecutors and defense lawyers will brief the judge on where the case now stands.

Schuster is accused of scheming to unlawfully distribute controlled substances from April 2007 until at least August 2012.

Prosecutors say he directed and allowed staff members -- none of them licensed to write prescriptions -- to dispense controlled substances using signed, blank prescription pads he left while traveling.
