Scientology Ringleaders Are Dope Dealers

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

By Torsten Ove, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Markell D. Boulis made national news in the 1990s when he paid $200,000 for his freedom in an Atlanta cocaine case so controversial that it prompted Georgia to change its sentencing rules.

He might soon be in the national spotlight again.

Mr. Boulis, an admitted drug dealer, suspended Pittsburgh chiropractor and founder of the Hemorrhoid Relief Centers of Pittsburgh, is a central figure in one of the largest health insurance fraud cases in the United States.


Finances aside, the Boulises have more immediate problems in Georgia, where Mr. Boulis first got into trouble as a student at Life University near Atlanta.

Just before he got his chiropractic license in 1991, he was arrested in Cobb County, Ga., on charges of trying to sell cocaine. A jury found him guilty of possession in 1993, and he was sentenced to five years in prison, 25 years of probation and a $50,000 fine.

Mr. Boulis petitioned the court under Georgia's Probation for First Time Offender Act and got his sentence reduced to a year in jail, 25 years of probation and $150,000 in cash.

"It was my cocaine," he admitted in court. "I purchased it, and I was going to distribute it."

His jail term was later eliminated after he made a $200,000 "donation" to the Marietta-Cobb-Smyrna Narcotics Unit. The probationary term remained.


After the story broke in the Atlanta paper, Ms. Skulos-Boulis accused the district attorney's office of reneging on a promise to seal the case so her husband could retain his license. He finally lost his license in 1997 after spending five years as a chiropractor at several locations in the Pittsburgh area and West Virginia.

No longer able to practice, Mr. Boulis then joined up with Mr. Goroway and Brad Goldstein, owner of Premier Medical Group, in Florida. The three had met at Life University and were members of the Church of Scientology.
