    The petition said Mangrum knowingly provided the unidentified woman with drugs not to treat dental conditions, but to satisfy her addiction. Mangrum is also accused of prescribing drugs to individuals for ailments he is not authorized to treat, such as insomnia and hyperactivity.

    In May 1989, Mangrum took the drug-addicted patient to a condominium in Park City, where he encouraged her to take several doses of prescription drugs, then attempted to have sex with her, the petition said. "When (the unidentified woman) resisted, Mangrum told her that he would provide her with whatever drugs she required if she would allow him to proceed."

    The state also accuses Mangrum of being sexually abusive to his office assistant. The employee alleges that she saw Mangrum self-administer nitrous oxide gas to the point where he passed out, the petition said.
