Doc Could Do Time

A Springfield doctor is being  convicted in connection with allowing a pharmaceutical sales  representative to access patient records and lying to federal  investigators about the matter.  

Rita Luthra, a gynecologist, was found  guilty by a federal jury on Monday, according to the U.S. Justice  Department.  

A sentencing has not yet been scheduled.  

Luthra, who is  from Longmeadow, allowed a sales rep from Warner Chilcott to access  protected health information in her patients' medical files from January  to November of 2011, according to prosecutors.

She could get a year in prison and up to a 50 thousand dollar fine.
