New York otolaryngologist accused of trying to swap pills for sex

 A New York otolaryngologist and lawmaker allegedly arranged to sell pills to a woman for sex at a Goodwill store parking lot, according to an NBC4 report Oct. 20.

William Spencer, MD, believed he was meeting a woman who would have sex with him in exchange for pills, but it was a sting operation led by the Suffolk County district attorney's office, the report said. The task force was tipped off after a previous drug investigation.

NBC4 was unable to reach Dr. Spencer for comment, the report said.

Dr. Spencer has worked at his own private practice and is chief of otolaryngology at Huntington (N.Y.) Hospital, the report said. He's been a Suffolk County legislator since 2011 and worked on an opioid task force.
