CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Fort Mitchell, Ky. man is back in jail after investigators say he it appears he has begun running a clinic, even though he's not a doctor.

Jack Readnour, 64, was out on bail after an investigation found that he was unlawfully practicing medicine at the Monfort Heights Family Clinic on North Bend Road.

He faces charges of Practicing Medicine Without a License and Possessing Criminal Tools. His trial is expected to begin in March.

Prosecuting attorneys filed a motion to have Readnour's bond increased, because, according to court documents, "The State of Ohio and law enforcement agencies have reason to believe that a bond of $100,000 at 10 percent is not sufficient and that there is a substantial risk to the public, as the Defendant has resumed his illegal activities."

Investigators believe Readnour has a Web site under St. Igantius Family Care with a facility located in the 5500 block of Rybolt Road. The Web site says it provides several services, including routine check ups, cardiac function monitoring, cancer detection testing, pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology.

Prosecutors requested Readnour be held on a $1 million bond, but Judge Ralph Winkler set it at $250,000 and ordered Readnour provide no medical services to anyone.
