A Danville doctor and two women associated with his office have been indicted by a Boyle County grand jury on multiple counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.
Dr. Todd Lackney, an osteopathic internist whose office is at 321 S. Third St., is charged with four counts of obtaining prescription drugs by fraud for allegedly helping the women obtain Loritab and Tussionex. Loritab, a pain killer, and cough suppressant Tussionex both contain the narcotic hydrocodone.
Lackney, 42, of 664 Seminole Trail, declined to comment today, referring questions to attorney Hadden Dean. Dean could not be reached this morning.
Commonwealth's Attorney Richard Bottoms also could not be reached for comment today.
Joanie Smith, 42, address unavailable, who works in Lackney's office, is charged with six counts of obtaining drugs by fraud. According to the indictment, Smith received two prescriptions each for Loritab, Tussionex and the diet drug phentermine "when she misrepresented her need for the drug or knowingly withheld information."
