Dr. Locklear Reported To Be 'Doing Well' In Rehab Facility

Dr. Robert W. Locklear will appear Nov. 29 in Greene County Criminal Court. Meanwhile, Locklear is making progress in a Georgia rehabilitation facility, a bail bondsman who has spoken with administrators there said.

Locklear was not present Friday when Judge John F. Dugger Jr. set the court date.

The Greeneville physician, who was charged in June with crack cocaine possession, remains in Talbott Recovery in Atlanta.

Locklear's bond on two felony charges of felony possession of a Schedule II drug is $80,000. Kerry Emmett, of Express Bail Bonds, has a vested interest in his progress.

Emmett told Judge Dugger in court that Locklear, 42, appears to be taking advantage of the rehab setting.

"I spoke with a counselor (at Talbott), and he's doing really well," Emmett said outside the courthouse.

Locklear, 42, will be arraigned in criminal court Nov. 29.

The Greeneville doctor has been in the Georgia drug rehabilitation facility since early July. In late June, he left a rehab facility in Alabama without notifying anyone, and was located by Express Bail Bond agents in a hotel near Birmingham.

Locklear tested positive for cocaine after being taken into custody.

Judge Kenneth Bailey gave Locklear another chance at rehab at a July 8 court appearance.

"He is doing well," Emmett said.

Ronald Chesnut, the Greeneville lawyer representing Locklear, said in July the Atlanta rehab program is better suited to Locklear's needs.

"It's more structured, and that's what he actually needed," he said.
