Palm Beach County Teen Accused of Posing as Doctor Offered Plea Deal

A Palm Beach County teen accused of posing as a doctor and practicing medicine without a license has been offered a plea deal.

Malachi Love-Robinson, 19, appeared in court hearing Wednesday, where prosecutors offered him three years in prison plus probation, WPTV reported.

Love-Robinson wouldn't comment after Wednesday's hearing. He's due back in court in June to discuss whether he will accept the offer.

Authorities arrested Love-Robinson in February after an undercover agent went to his office, The New Birth New Life Medical Center, and complained of a sore throat, lethargy and sneezing.

Love-Robinson took the woman's temperature and used a stethoscope to check her lungs and heart and told her she was suffering from allergies and should take an over-the-counter medication, according to investigators.

He told her he was a doctor of homeopathic medicine, the report said, and explained that he had a medical doctor on staff to prescribe antibiotics. She signaled to other detectives, who entered the office and arrested Love-Robinson.

Love-Robinson was arrested again in March after a authorities say he charged a woman $3,494 after making five visits to her house when she contacted him online for treatment of stomach pains.

The woman also claimed Love-Robinson called an ambulance to take her to the hospital and suggested she leave her purse behind. She said her bank account had been emptied by the time she was released.

Investigators also said Love-Robinson had forged three checks from her account. He allegedly used the checks to pay for nearly $30,000 in cars and several more thousands in credit card debt.

In a press conference after his first arrest, Love-Robinson said he was "deeply saddened and a little disrespected" by the claims.
