Sober Home Operator Charged With Giving Drugs For Sex

A prominent Boston lawyer and operator of a sober home has been charged with distributing drugs to people recovering from addictions in exchange for sex.

Prosecutors say 57-year-old David Perry targeted multiple people between 2012 and 2017 and provided false information to probation departments in exchange for sex, drugs and money.

Perry is the owner/operator of Recovery Education Services Inc., a nonprofit that runs a residential facility in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

The Reading man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to multiple charges, including evidence tampering, conspiracy to distribute illegal drugs and sex for a fee.

Perry's attorney, Peter Pasciucco, says his client denies the allegations and plans on "vigorously defending" against each indictment.

He is free on $10,000 bond and has been ordered to stay away from the sober house.
