FDLE agents today arrested Asok Roy, 74, and his wife, Manjula Roy, 72, at 9183 Old A1A, St. Augustine, Florida, after a comprehensive investigation spanning more than a year.
Asok Roy was arrested for five counts of solicitation to commit prostitution, two counts of writing a prescription for monetary benefit, two counts of falsely omitting information on a document or report, and one count of being principle to practicing a health care profession without a license. Manjula Roy was arrested for practicing a health care profession without a license.
The arrests were the result of evidence collected during multiple undercover operations, interviews and search warrants at both the Roys’ residence and the Medical Clinic of St. Augustine. Asok Roy was also served with an Emergency Suspension Order by the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) which prevented him from practicing medicine in the state and he has since voluntarily relinquished his license.
The North Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA), St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, DEA Diversion and FDOH partnered with FDLE on the investigation.
The Roys were booked into the St. Johns County Jail and the case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, Seventh Judicial Circuit.
