Robert Stadnyk entered a not-guilty plea on August 15.

The two other pharmacists facing the same charges set trial dates down in August. The trials for Kathryn Keiser and Evan King will run from Jan. 22-30.

All three individuals face a charge of fraud over $5,000 and theft over $5,000, stemming from allegations they received rebates and incentive payments to the sum of $1.6 million directly through negotiating drug purchases.

All three pharmacists worked at a Medicine Hat Co-op pharmacy. They have all since had their employments terminated.
