The Ogemaw County prosecutor says she has dropped fraud charges involving five of Kumar’s adapt physical therapy businesses, without prejudice.

This means the prosecutor can file the charges again in the future.

She also says a judge dismissed second degree Criminal Sexual Conduct charges without prejudice.

An investigation by the United States Health and Human Services is still ongoing.

In a release, Kumar says he plans to fight back.
