Doctor Pulled from United Flight Sparks Debate Over Past Conviction
The doctor who was pulled off from a United flight has a troubling past. He was a felon for trading narcotics in return for gay sex with his own patient. Furthermore, he also had anger management, control issues, disruptive behavior, and a poking habit.
Doctor David Dao who specializes in pulmonary disease has been convicted of a felony by having an illicit sexual relationship with his patient, Brian Case. At first, he was able to avoid jail time because he was providing Case with prescription drugs such as Vicodin and other narcotics. Soon the inappropriate and secret relationship advances when the Vietnamese doctor hired Case as his office manager.
According to a 130-page file provided by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, the two men secretly perform sexual activities in motels and Dr. Dao would give Case around $200 per encounter as well as share drugs.
The records say that the doctor was arrested during an undercover in which Case agreed to participate. The doctor was caught “with his shirt off and his pants undone”, and even when caught in the act, Dr. Dao still managed to deny the allegations that his intention was to perform gay sex with his patient.
Records say that in 2003, Dr. Dao was convicted for ‘criminal acts of trafficking in a controlled substance, obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit, and unauthorized prescribing, dispensing or administering of controlled substances’, as charged by a Jefferson County Grand Jury’.
As per the record, findings showed that the said doctor had performed sexual activities with his patient, who was referred to as ‘Patient A’. Case was 26 at that time, about half the age of Dr. Dao.
The doctor was sentenced to two years and eight months for his misconduct and was given 5-year supervised probation. While being suspended from his medical practice, he spent his days playing poker and was reported to have accumulated over $230,000 in 2006, as told by Poker News.
