W. Pa. doctor to stand trial in drugs-for-sex case

PITTSBURGH — A western Pennsylvania doctor has been ordered to stand trial on charges he overprescribed anti-addiction and anti-anxiety drugs and traded them for sex with female patients before his offices were raided and closed last year.

The (Oil City) Derrick reports 67-year-old Dr. Thomas Radecki wasn’t in court when his attorney waived a preliminary hearing  on charges including overprescribing medicines and running a corrupt organization.

State prosecutors say Radecki ran much of his allegedly illegal operation out of Clarion home, which he frequently shared with female patients and referred to as an “income-sharing commune.”

That’s also where investigators say Radecki stored about $5 million worth of prescription drugs, based on the street prices he allegedly charged at his all-cash practice during 2011 and the first five months of 2012.
