A Clarion doctor was arraigned last week on charges connected with the alleged over-prescriptions of controlled substances and his alleged sexual relationships with female patients for whom he allegedly provided drugs.
67 year-old Thomas Radecki faces at least 23 charges, according to information provided by the office of Kathleen Kane, Pennsylvania’s Attorney General. Kane says, in 2011, Radecki was the largest purchaser and supplier in Pennsylvania of three prescription drugs used in the treatments of opiate addictions and Attention Deficit Disorder.
Radecki operated four doctor’s offices in western Pennsylvania, including offices in Seneca and in Clarion.
Kane’s office says many of Radecki’s patients sold the drugs they received from the doctor. The Attorney General also accuses Radecki of providing several female patients drugs, money and jobs in exchange for sex, and that he fathered a child by one of the women last year.
Kane also says Radecki’s Illinois medical license was revoked back in 1992 after an alleged sexual relationship with a patient in that state.
After Radecki’s arraignment last week, the doctor was released on bond.
