A Tennessee nurse practitioner who was indicted last month on charges of trading opioid pills for sex and fame also kept video footage on his phone of him having sex with a “nearly unconscious woman,” the Tennessean reports. Jeffrey Young of Jackson is being called by prosecutors a "sexual predator" who coerced women into sex by “dangling opioid prescriptions over them.” Young also has continued to write dangerous prescriptions — including prescribing to patients who are "doctor shopping" — in the 2½ weeks since he was indicted and released pending trial, the prosecutors state. Federal prosecutors are attempting to use these details to revoke Young's bail.
