Joshua D. Baron, a Chicago pediatric neurologist, admits writing 149 prescriptions in exchange for sex.

From 2006 through 2011, Baron has admitted to writing 149 people prescriptions for drugs to 16 people, none of whom were his patients. He also posted at least 78 ads on Craigslist offer to trade drugs under sections titled, ‘Men Who Would Pay’ and ‘Casual Encounters.’…
