Dr. Peter Rice Arrested in Sex Sting … Says He Was Conducting Research on STDs


I do not think that health insurance pays for this …

Now here is a great excuse to use when a doctor gets nabbed trying to solicit sex from an assumed patient. Of course it usually does not work when one’s solicits sex from an undercover police officer. Dr Peter Rice at UMass Memorial Medical Center has been charged with soliciting sex from an undercover Worcester, MA police officer who was posing as a prostitute.  It was all for research, really it was …

But Dr. Peter Rice said he is not guilty and was only “gathering information” when he was arrested Saturday. He told the Telegram & Gazette that he is a specialist in infectious diseases and researches sexually transmitted diseases.

Rice offered the undercover female officer $40 for sex, police said. His arrest came as part a two-day prostitution sweep in the Main South section of the city.

      I believe his explanation.

      First of all, police are not always accurate (some have other names for this dishonesty) during “sweeps” and may well have arrested men who were not attempting to purchase sex from an undercover police woman. Second, it was a Saturday afternoon, which is far more likely to be the time when a researcher (yes, with 145 published medical journal articles he is a researcher) is likely to speak to someone to find out information for the next paper. Third, he is likely to be very driven professionally and to not have insight into how his discussion would look to others. Finally, if he was seeking sex for money, he would likely do so in a higher-priced setting which would entail less risk of not only detection, but the one thing that he would worry about even more given his work: sexually transmitted diseases.

      I don’t think that he was trying to purchase sex.

      Well, I hope his wife isn’t as naive as some of the rest of us, because if I were her, I’d take him for everything he has. Doctors don’t do their research in a known prostitute area of town, nor do they participate in sex as part of the research; unless your name is Dr. Rice. They place ads in newspapers and seek out volunteers from the Universities who get paid alot more than $40. In fact, I would venture to say that having sex is not even part of the regimen. The research gathered is more related to comparing sexual histories.

      I say take him to the cleaners and hang him out to dry so he is left to do his research pullin’ tricks for $10 a shot on Hollywood Boulevard. Then, maybe he could have some first hand experience at the transmission part of an STD, the good old fashion way.

      I know that sounds mean, but I support these sweeps; I think they are good for the community. If there weren’t so many men with $40 burning a hole in their underware, we wouldn’t have so much human trafficking. Whether it is the buying or the selling, it’s wrong, and it supports a system that causes other crimes to be committed. So I say let the Johns take their medicine and suffer the consequences of their actions, just as any other criminal.

      What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

      to be honest i think it’s bullsh!t to begin with! both the sweep and the stupid excuse that this dude used! If he wants something better than what he has at home, he should have looked harder in the first place. Not to mention with an excuse like that, the name that he leaves for other doctors in his field is not exactly flattering.

      As for the sweeps, don’t they border on entrapment? If a guy wants to give himself an STD then let him! think of it as population control. I figured that they would be using the random video cameras placed conveniently around the city on traffic lights for a little more than what they’ve been utilized for thus far.

      To conclude, i really think it’s bull that this is what i find when i google my name. what a shame.
