North Carolina doctor and son face drug and child porn charges

A series of diverse allegations and criminal charges surround a North Carolina doctor and his adult son, news outlets report. Dr. Clinton Henry Leinweber Jr., 59, is charged with three counts of trafficking heroin or opium. He is also accused of having drugged and secretly videotaped a woman with whom he is in a relationship.

His son, 27-year-old Gregory Leinweber, is charged with a half-dozen counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation agents said they found child pornography on his computer during a raid of the home where the father and son live.

The elder Leinweber apparently teaches at East Carolina University and has been a radiation oncologist at the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center.

The ECU Chancellor said that patient safety was not compromised.

According to news reports, warrants for the doctor stated that he "unlawfully, willfully and feloniously possessed more than 28 grams of hydrocodone or opiates."

Bond was initially set for him at $4.5 million.

According to an affidavit for a warrant, a confidential source informed the State Bureau of Investigation that the doctor was secretly videotaping a person with whom he has a relationship. The source further alleged that the doctor used diverted prescription medications to drug the woman without her knowledge or permission and then record her while she was unconscious.

Becker's Hospital Review reported that several cameras disguised as pens and keys were found in the doctor's office and his home.

In situations involving high stakes and grave allegations, suspects should decline to speak with law enforcement officials or prosecutors until they have talked to an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
