A Prescott doctor accused of having sex with an underage patient is now under arrest for prescription fraud.

Dwight D'Evelyn with the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said that Doctor Randy Spicer is accused of prescribing narcotic medications to patients without medical conditions.

The Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking taskforce had been monitoring Spicer's practice.

"Our task force had received some information concerning Doctor Spicer, and we were able to verify that Doctor Spicer had been issuing these prescriptions for absolutely no medical reason," D'Evelyn said.

Spicer was out on bond for the sex charge when he was arrested Wednesday at the Clearwater Medical Center in Prescott.

"They also documented several violations that included an agreement by Doctor Spicer to profit from medications he knowingly proscribed for resale on the street," D'Evelyn said.

He is believed to have been prescribing narcotics fraudulently since the beginning of the year.
