BEREA, Ky. – Police in eastern Kentucky say an 82-year-old man traded prescription drugs for sexual favors.
Archie Anglin, of Berea, has been charged with trafficking in a controlled substance.
Anglin's attorney, Michael Eubanks, said a possession of a controlled substance charge was dismissed against Anglin because he had prescriptions for the drugs.
Anglin was free on bond.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that police said they were initially concerned that women in their 20s, often seen at Anglin's home, were taking advantage of him.
But police said when they investigated Anglin's complaints about thefts at his home, they discovered he gave two women the prescription drug OxyContin in exchange for sex.
Eubanks declined to comment further on the case against Anglin.
