Man charged with impersonating doctor, sex abuse

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a central Kentucky man on charges of impersonating a doctor and sex abuse.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports 44-year-old Dean Alan Willoughby of Mount Sterling was indicted Monday.

Police say Willoughby had a clinic in Lexington where he posed as a doctor who was doing medical research and paid men $50 to examine their prostates and check for hernias.

The newspaper says Willoughby's attorney, Jim Lowry, declined to comment.

Willoughby spent time in prison in South Carolina after pleading guilty in 1994 to practicing medicine without a license and other charges.

Prosecutors there had accused him of offering free medical services to dozens of people, many of them homeless. Willoughby is scheduled to be arraigned June 26.
