A pediatric neurologist is accused of offering to trade prescription drugs for sex.

Dr. Joshua Baron of Oak Park was arrested Thursday by police in Wilmette.

The 37-year-old has been suspended from his job at Rush University Medical Center.

Police say they started investigating Baron a week ago when officers saw an advertisement he placed on Craigslist.
