Former Mason doc's fate now in hands of Ohio grand jury

Levine drug case bound over to Pike grand jury

WAVERLY, Ohio -- A former Mason County physician now awaits a decision by a grand jury if pending drug charges against him have merit.

On Thursday, Feb. 21, Dr. Jack M. Levine was scheduled to go on trial for sexual imposition in Pike County Court. Levine was charged with the crime, a misdemeanor, in December after a female patient he was treating for addiction to prescription pain medication alleged he touched her inappropriately.

However, the Pike County Prosecutor's Office asked that the charge be dismissed. On Feb. 19, it filed charges of information on alleged drug-related activity conducted by Levine discovered in the course of its investigation of the sexual imposition allegation.
