NORFOLK (AP) -- A Norfolk doctor has lost his license to practice medicine in Virginia for the second time since 1995.

The Virginia Board of Medicine revoked Dr. Flordelino Lagundino's license after state investigators found that he prescribed high-powered medications without proper monitoring.

According to Board of Medicine records, Lagundino also failed to monitor patients who received the drugs.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the board's executive director signed the revocation order last week.

Board records show that Lagundino's license was revoked in 1995 after he was convicted on drug and fraud charges in Spotsylvania County. He was sentenced to 45 years in prison, with all but four years of the term suspended.

Lagundino regained his license on a probationary basis in 1999. He was granted full privileges in 2003.
