Dudley was in custody and couldn’t be reached for comment. Attorney information wasn’t available and a phone listing wasn’t in service.

The complaint says Dudley treated the woman for heroin addiction at a Bronx clinic in 2007 and 2008 and stayed in contact afterward.

Investigators say they recorded conversations this year where she asked Dudley to mail Xanax prescriptions. Authorities say he wrote them on forms from the Bronx clinic where he no longer works.
