WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WTXL) - A Florida man is pleading guilty for posing as a doctor when he was a teen and stealing thousands of dollars from several victims, including an elderly patient.

Malachi Love-Robinson, 20, was in a West Palm Beach courtroom Thursday, where a judge sentenced him to 3.5 years.

Police say he stole more than $20,000 from an 86-year-old woman during a series of visits to her home.

Love-Robinson was arrested in 2016 after conducting an exam on a female undercover officer, who went to his office complaining of feeling sick.

He must also repay his victims when he gets out of prison.
