An Indiana doctor who swapped prescriptions and pills in exchange for sexual favors pleaded guilty Monday morning to seven criminal charges, including the illegal distribution of controlled substances and voyeurism.

Dr. Eric Jones, 46, appeared in court in Indiana’s Madison County on Monday to enter his plea, according to court records obtained by PEOPLE.

Under a plea agreement struck with prosecutors, Jones will be sentenced next month to in-home detention for a period of six years, court records indicate.

Authorities alleged Jones wrote prescriptions and gave pills to patients willing to have sexual intercourse with him.

Other patients performed unspecified sexual favors for illicit access to drugs.

Jones was arrested over a year ago following a raid at his family practice in Pendleton, Indiana. He has since had his medical license suspended.

The state had filed 30 criminal charges against Jones last spring, according to records.
