Accomplice to doctor known as the 'candyman' charged

Candyman update

READING, Pa. - Charges have now been filed against the alleged accomplice of the Reading doctor known as the "candyman."

Rameeza Chowdhury is facing a list of charges, including conspiracy, according to the Pennsylvania attorney general's office.

Officials said Chowdhury worked for Dr. Mohammed Abdul Rahman Khan at Berks Psychiatry in Reading.

Khan was arrested in October after officials said he wrote thousands of bogus prescriptions.

Authorities said Chowdhury worked as the office administrator and falsified patient files to justify the prescriptions. She's also accused of attempting to coach a witness, who officials said was actually an informant.
