Teen Charged With Being a Fake Doctor Arrested Again



    (Published Monday, Aug. 29, 2016)

    Malachi Love-Robinson, the alleged fake teen doctor, has been arrested again.

    He faces new charges of larceny between $20,000 and $100,000, and fraud.

    According to The Palm Beach Post , Love-Robinson was arrested Monday during a court hearing where his attorney asked to be released from serving as the 19-year-old's lawyer.

    Love-Robinson was first arrested in February and charged with practicing medicine without a license, fraud, theft and faking a naturopathy license.

    Last month, attorneys for the so called "Dr. Love" filed documents saying they are "exploring the viability of a defense focused on limitations presented bythe defendant's mental health."

    Earlier this year, Love-Robinson turned down a plea deal in which he would have served three years in prison.
