FULTON, NY – Dr. Dilip K. Roy, former Fulton doctor at his family owned practice FastCare Family Medical plead not guilty today (Oct.13) to his indictment charges.
Roy was previously indicted on two counts of rape in the third degree, according to Assistant District Attorney, Allison O’Neill.
The charges stem from his May 2015 arrest in which a female patient alleged that she was subjected to unwanted sexual intercourse during an office visit.
“Dr. Roy violated the law by one act, but has two different charges. Basically, the difference is that one count of rape was for plain lack of consent from the victim, while the other count is based on the patient-doctor relationship. So, even if she did consent, the law says she could not have consented due to that relationship,” said O’Neill.
Assistant District Attorney, Mark Moody requested two orders of protection be put in place for the alleged victim and one witness in the case, a relative of the victim.
Judge Todd also ordered Roy to turn in his passport within a week.
Roy was released under these conditions and is scheduled to appear back in court on December 11.
Dr. Roy is now facing new charges as well after a second arrest today in relation to a different occurrence.
