Doctor In Nurse Retaliation Scheduled To Plead

KERMIT, Texas (AP) - A doctor accused of retaliating against two whistle-blowing West Texas nurses for their complaints about him to the state medical board is scheduled to enter a plea.

Prosecutor David Glickler says Dr. Rolando G. Arafiles is to enter a guilty plea on Nov. 7 in Kermit. He declined to say what charge the plea will would be to or what sentence has been agreed to.

No telephone number is listed for Arafiles in Victoria, where he now practices medicine. He's charged with two counts each of felony misuse of official information and retaliation.

Arafiles asked the Winkler County sheriff to investigate the complaint. The nurses were fired from their jobs at a Kermit hospital and charged with felonies. Anne Mitchell was acquitted, and charges against Vickilyn Galle were dropped.
