Asheville medical spa patient drops sexual assault suit against doctor


Mountain Radiance Spa in downtown Asheville was where Tori Rosella Vera had a Botox treatment done by Dr. Allan Zacher on April 14, 2018.

ASHEVILLE – A woman who said she was sexually assaulted by a downtown medical spa doctor while she was intoxicated has dropped her civil suit against him.

Tori Rosella Vera, a former Asheville resident now living in Fayetteville, voluntarily dismissed her Buncombe County Superior Court case this month against ex-doctor Allan Norman Zacher.

Vera’s attorney Lakota Denton said he advised her to drop the case after learning a comprehensive drug test had not been done after Vera’s April 14, 2018, encounter with Zacher, whom she accused of drugging her. 

“When I talked to the district attorney out in Haywood County I learned they never took a full toxicology report from my client,” he said March 28.

Without such evidence the case would be too difficult to prove, he said.
