St. Clairsville doctor sentenced for illegal drug trafficking, possession

BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WTRF) - The St. Clairsville urology doctor convicted of illegal drug trafficking and possession has been sentenced to six months in jail and six months in the East Ohio Correctional Center.

Judge Frank Fregiato sentenced Dr. Rodney Curtis Thursday morning.

The judge said he had gotten many letters about this case, some urging an extremely strict sentence, and others asking that Dr. Curtis be set free.

Judge Fregiato said he would not be swayed in either direction, and just because Curtis is a physician, he will not be treated either more harshly or more leniently.

Custis's driver's license was also suspended for one year.

The fate of his medical license is up to the state medical licensing board.
