    A drug-addicted doctor watched his wife lose consciousness and struggle for breath after he injected her with heroin.

    Ashley Sibery, 39, persuaded his partner Sital to take the class A drug after she asked him about his drug habit.

    Mrs Sibery decided to confront her husband because of his erratic behaviour, Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard on Tuesday.

    On Tuesday, Sibery pleaded guilty to a charge of culpable and reckless conduct before Sheriff Elizabeth Jarvie QC.

    Depute fiscal Karen Rollo told the court on April 2 this year the couple had an argument about how Sibery had been acting.

    She added: "He had admitted to her that he had spent the last two months injecting heroin into himself. She issued him with an ultimatum. She told him he had to stop taking the drugs or their marriage would be over.

    "Bizarrely, he asked her if she wanted to try some. He told her that he had a small quantity of heroin remaining in the house and that he would give her it. He wanted her to experience the drug, to see what it was like. The heroin was then prepared and it was injected into her.

    "Within a few minutes, she collapsed and lost consciousness. She started to have breathing difficulties. An ambulance was then called to the house. The paramedics who attended the scene recognised him as being a doctor.

    "They managed to keep her breathing and also stabilised her condition. She was then taken to hospital and received treatment."

    Sibery was arrested and told police what had happened.

    Ms Rollo added: "The accused indicated that he had a heroin habit. He confessed to them that he had given his wife heroin. He told them that he wanted to relax her and deal with stress. He told the officers how she slipped into unconsciousness."

    The court heard Sibery is now in the care of a consultant psychiatrist who is helping him to tackle his problems. The couple are still together.

    Sheriff Jarvie told Sibery that she would pass sentence on him at a hearing next month.

    Although he probably didnt know the exact putiry of the heroin (unless it was medical grade diamorphine) im sure he would have realised that an opioid naive individual would be far more succepatible to overdose than himself, and as such would have either administered a smaller dose or reccomended that she smoke it or at most snort. The fact that a doctor willingly gave someone a dose of heroin that made them unconsioiss in itself is cause for conern, without the add of it being his wife and the fact he SUGGESTED she try it for off label use........

    [imgl=white]http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=29222&stc=1&d=1351189416[/imgl]A DOCTOR who injected his wife with heroin is to spend six weeks in rehab. Drug-addicted GP Ashley Sibery had his sentencing deferred until he completed the residential treatment.

    He admitted a charge of culpable and reckless conduct after he convinced his wife to share his “last” hit with him in April this year.

    The 39-year-old offered his wife the chance to “try some” before he injected her with £10-worth of the drug. Soon afterwards his wife Sital became ill, collapsed on the couch and fell unconscious.

    Sibery then called an ambulance, which took her to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where she spent six hours under observation.

    Sibery, who appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today for sentencing, is still married to his wife and the couple have a three-year-old son.

    The doctor, wearing a black suit, looked nervous as the court was told he is on a residential abstinence.

    Overcome

    He has previously lapsed during the programme and will remain in rehab until December 5 this year, said his defence lawyer Duncan Batchelor.

    After he has completed this he is due to attend up to 30 sessions and meetings to monitor his progress.

    Mr Batchelor said: “He has shown maximum efforts to overcome drugs and alcohol.

    “He is attending three to five to seven meetings a week.”

    He added: “His priorities at this stage are his wife and family.”

    Sheriff Elizabeth Jarvie QC noted “there has been a previous lapse” in his treatment, which Mr Batchelor agreed had occurred.

    Sibery is currently signed off on sick leave as a GP.

    The General Medical Council will take approximately one year to hear whether to not if Sibery is fit to return to practise after the incident.

    Sheriff Jarvie said: “What I propose today is to continue the case until shortly after 5 December.

    “I want an updated report to see if he has completed this successfully or not.”

    Ultimatum

    She told Sibery: “I defer sentence until shortly after you have completed the programme.”

    He will next appear at Edinburgh Sheriff court on 12 December for sentencing.

    The court also heard today “his wife was shocked and angry” about his habit, and confronted him before she agreed to try the drug.

    Fiscal depute Bruce Macrossan told the court: “The couple were discussing the matter and she gave her husband an ultimatum, to stop or she would leave him.”

    The court heard: “Mr Sibery told his wife he had a small amount left in the house and wouldn’t get more and offered her to try some.

    “She said yes and he injected her.

    “After a few minutes his wife collapsed, lost consciousness.”

    The fiscal depute continued: “Paramedics arrived quickly and he told the paramedics his wife took heroin.

    “At 12.40am officers attended his home and officers noticed drug paraphernalia on the kitchen table.

    “Mr Sibery explained to officers that he injected his wife with £10 worth of heroin to relax her.”

    On the 6 June, Sibery attended a police station and was interviewed by police.

    He voluntarily told officers he had injected his wife with the heroin.
