A Florida teenager made national news in 2016 for pretending to be a doctor. Malachi Love-Robinson, also known as Doctor Love, has been sentenced to one year in prison in Virginia on unrelated charges. According to the news on Monday, May 22, 2017, Love-Robinson pleaded guilty to fraud charges in Stafford County. The now 20-year-old man was sentenced to five years, with four years suspended.

Crime in Virginia

Last September, when he was still a teenager, he attempted to buy a 2013 Lexus 350 for $35,000 from Kargar Motors on Jefferson Davis Highway.

General Manager Mike Hickman became suspicious when Love-Robinson attempted to use a relative's security number and other personal information to co-sign for the car without her permission. The information belonged to an elderly relative. Hickman admitted to CBS 6 News that Love-Robinson had him fooled at first because he is a really good con artist.

Crimes in Florida

At the time of the Virginia crime, the man was out on a $6,000 bail for pretending to be a medical doctor. He is still facing several charges in Florida for obtaining a large sum of money from an elderly woman in Palm Beach Country, Florida when he posed as a doctor.

When Malachi was 18-year-old, he opened his own medical practice and pretended to be a gynecologist.

He got away with it for many months before people discovered that he was not a real doctor. However, by that time, he had patients and was prescribing medications to them, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff told the teen that it didn't mean he could practice medicine just because he saw one season of "Grey's Anatomy." It is unbelievable that the teen was able to rent office space, get patients, medications, and a full staff to help him.

He didn't try to hide anything. In fact, he had a website and Facebook page advertising his services. When he moved into his office, he had a grand opening and invited people in the community to check out the facility.

In order to have sufficient evidence against him, investigators set up a sting operation, and he was caught in the act of conducting a physical examination and offering medical advice to an undercover agent.

He was charged with practicing medicine without a license as a third-degree felony. The Department of Health also issued several citations. Some of the fake doctor's family members thought he was a real doctor. In March 2016, a judge ordered a mental health assessment for the impostor.
