'Fake' Teen Doctor to Serve Prison Time for Practicing Without a License

Fake teen doctor Malachi Love-Robinson pleads guilty to multiple charges

'Fake' Teen Doctor to Serve Prison Time for Practicing Without a License

He will serve 42 months in prison but has some credit for time served.

In a meeting with state investigators, Love-Robinson later admitted that a diploma from Arizona State University he kept at the clinic was false, but that he did have an degree from an online Christian school.

The newspaper reported that he had visited Anita Morrison, the 86-year-old woman, several times in West Palm Beach after she had complained of intestinal pain.

The report said Love-Robinson claimed to be a doctor of homeopathic medicine.

In February 2016, Love-Robinson was arrested after he examined a Palm Beach Sheriff's Office deputy posing as a patient at New Birth New Life Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

That year, one of Love-Robinson's former lawyers announced plans to explore a mental health defense.

Love-Robinson has also been ordered to pay his victims restitution. Investigators said he lied in an effort to obtain credit when trying to purchase the luxury auto.

"We put her in a triage room where we took her weight, her blood pressure and her temperature", Love-Robinson told Inside Edition in an interview shortly after his arrest. Unlike Love-Robinson's clinic days, there was no one at this establishment licensed to diagnose or treat patients - including, of course, himself.

In preparation for a trial, prosecutors got sworn statements from bank tellers who cashed Morrison's allegedly forged checks.

"I found it very odd that a "doctor" at the age of 18-19 years old runs errands in a white coat, full name badge and a stethoscope", the teller wrote.

He was then arrested again in March and charged with two counts of practicing medicine without a license, two counts of practice of naturopathy without a license, three counts of forgery, two counts of grand theft from a person 65 or older, and three counts of fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Love-Robinson was serving out his Virginia sentence when he pleaded guilty to the Florida charges.

Combined Love-Robinson could have been sentenced to as many as 90 years in prison.
