Paintsville pain clinic shut down

A Johnson County pain clinic that was raided last week is shut down for good. Paintsville city officials revoked the business license for Care More Medical Management. The doctor working there also surrendered his Kentucky Medical License. After federal and local officials raided the office and seized records last week at the Caremore Medical building, Paintsville Mayor Bob Porter revoked its city business license with an order, calling it a "public nuisance." Paintsville police officer Steve Sluss said it was definitely a nuisance and authorities say the investigation into the business is still ongoing. The case is expected to be presented to a federal grand jury.
