LOS ANGELES—A San Gabriel Valley doctor has pleaded not guilty to federal drug trafficking charges that allege he illegally distributed drugs that include the powerful and addictive painkiller oxycodone.

Dr. Daniel Cham, 47, was arraigned on a 31-count indictment late Thursday afternoon, at which time a trial was scheduled for December 16. Cham was arrested Wednesday afternoon at his residence in Covina. At yesterday’s arraignment, bond was set at $140,000, and Cham was ordered to serve home detention while free on bond and was prohibited from practicing medicine.

The indictment, which was returned by a federal grand jury on October 7 and unsealed when the defendant was arrested, charges Cham with drug trafficking, money laundering, fraud and making false statements to federal authorities.  The indictment focuses on prescriptions Cham wrote at various locations, including his medical offices in La Puente and Artesia.
