CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Chattanooga doctor faces multiple federal charges following his arrest on Tuesday, according to the U.S. Dept. of Justice.
Ihsaan al-Amin, 61, was released on bond, pending his trial, which is set for August. He has also agreed to stop practicing medicine during his release.
