NEW YORK (AP) — A doctor and his wife who appeared on the Bravo reality series “Below Deck” have been arraigned on drug charges in New York for allegedly filling out bogus opioid prescriptions using the names of cast members from the show. Urologist Francis Martinis and his wife, Jessica Martinis, were each charged Thursday with criminal sale of a prescription for a controlled substance by a practitioner and falsifying business records. Prosecutors say Francis Martinis transmitted prescriptions for the opioid drug oxycodone with the names of “Below Deck” cast members listed as the patients. The couple’s attorney has called the charges bogus.
