A judge has dismissed a 69-count indictment against Dr. Randall Leuvoy, of Lancaster. Fairfield County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Clark ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prove the physician illegally processed drug documents. Leuvoy was being tried before a jury on 15 counts of the charges when the judge interrupted the trial and granted a defense motion for acquittal. Leuvoy was accused of illegally dispensing narcotics from a Franklin County jail cell in November of 2001. He spent ten days there for unpaid child support. Leuvoy signed 41 blank prescription slips, which his office staff later dated and completed to fill prescriptions for patients. Clark ruled that Leuvoy practiced questionable judgment, but didn’t do anything illegal by trying to care for his patients from jail.
