Fairbanks man accused of asking teenage son for drugs

Posted: Friday, January 08, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A Fairbanks man accused of trying to persuade his 14-year-old son to give him prescription painkillers has been charged with a felony drug charge.

If convicted, 36-year-old Randall L. McCoy could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the boy's mother and stepfather recorded phone conversations between McCoy and his children because of concern for their safety. McCoy has previously been convicted of obtaining prescription drugs by misrepresentation.

The parents told the Alaska Bureau of Alcohol and Drug Enforcement in June that McCoy offered an iPod to his 14-year-old in exchange for Vicodin the teen was getting for an upcoming surgery.
