Man charged for posing as doctor

A Mount Sterling man was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon on charges that he practiced medicine without a license.

Lexington Police on Tuesday arrested Dean Alan Willoughby, 43, and charged him with practicing medicine without a license, a felony.

Willoughby is to be arraigned Wednesday in Fayette District Court.

According to an arrest report, a person paid Willoughby $50 to perform a physical. A second person was paid $20 for a referral.

Both people told police they thought Willoughby was a licensed physician. He has no medical license, according to the state medical board of licensure.

A call to Willoughby seeking comment was not immediately returned.
