Physician’s assets frozen during probe

The embattled Corydon OB-GYN under recent investigation for possible welfare fraud, theft and sexual abuse had his assets frozen last week.
The Harrison County Prosecutor’s Office filed a lawsuit last Tuesday for damages, forfeiture of property, seizure of assets and injunctive relief against Dr. Paul Kelty.
Court documents say Kelty possesses multiple equity accounts with Hilliard Lyons, with balances and securities exceeding more than $3 million in value. Also, Kelty is believed to have more than $48,000 in a demand deposit account at Republic Bank.
The prosecutor’s office believes the money was obtained through ‘ and that Kelty profited from ‘ possible illegal activity, and the accounts were frozen as part of the investigation into Kelty and his OB-GYN practice.
Kelty, who has not been charged with a crime, has 20 days from the date he received paperwork (23 days if he received the notification by mail) notifying him of the lawsuit to respond with a written answer to the lawsuit.
