Kentucky disability attorney pleads not guilty to fraud

Lawyers for a Kentucky attorney and a psychologist charged in a disability scheme have entered not guilty pleas in federal court for their clients.
    
Attorney Eric Conn and clinical psychologist Dr. Alfred Bradley Adkins appeared Tuesday in federal court, both wearing hand and leg irons. The men gave brief responses when spoken to by Magistrate Judge Robert E. Wier.
    
Conn remains in custody, with a detention hearing set for Thursday afternoon. Adkins was freed on a personal recognizance bond with the stipulation that he remove from his home firearms that were found there when he was arrested.
    
Conn, Adkins and former Social Security administrative law judge David Daugherty are accused of colluding to secure millions in federal benefits for Conn’s clients while enriching themselves.
