Florida teen Malachi Love-Robinson, 18, is back in the news again because of another arrest. The teen was arrested last month for practicing medicine without a license, fraud and grand theft in a scheme were he posed as a legitimate physician at a Florida urgent care facility he operated. He has now been arrested for one count of larceny and five counts of using another person’s identification without consent.
According to police, Love-Robinson used the checking account of an elderly woman he met on house calls when he was posing as a doctor. Police claim Love-Robinson used the account of Anita Moore, 87, to pay $29,700 for an auto loan on his Nissan. In addition, he also used another $1,800 for his Capitol One credit card bill. At his hearing, the judge ordered Love-Robinson to not possess any drugs, alcohol, or weapons and forbade him from practicing any sort of medicine. In addition, the judge ordered him to undergo a mental evaluation within 48 hours and placed him on supervised release.
Love-Robinson is being represented by attorney Andrew Stine, who stated about his client, “I think we lose sight of who he is … He’s really just a child. I know he’s a grown man in the eyes of the law. The point is he’s still a young man.”
While treating the elderly woman Ms. Morrison, Love-Robinson allegedly stole checks during house calls. Morrison stated she found out about Love-Robinson from an online search and needed treatment for severe pain from a stomach ailment and thought he could help. But all he did was give her vitamins that offered no relief. In addition, he allegedly told her that payments she was making were going towards hospital tests and a scheduled endoscopy and ultrasound, which never occurred. A hearing date for the charges that Love-Robinson is facing has not yet been made as the court awaits the results of his mental evaluation.
