Malachi Love-Robinson, who gained national infamy as a teen when he impersonated a doctor to defraud a patient, is heading back to prison after pleading guilty to stealing more than $10,000 from his employer

Malachi Love-Robinson, who gained national infamy as a teen when he impersonated a doctor to defraud a patient, is heading back to prison after pleading guilty to stealing more than $10,000 from his employer.

A serial grifter who gained national infamy as a teenager when he impersonated a doctor to defraud a patient is heading back to prison after pleading guilty to stealing more than $10,000 from his employer.

Malachi Love-Robinson, 25, received a sentence of over two years and four months last week after pleading guilty in Palm Beach County, Florida, to grand theft and organized scheme to defraud.

Court documents show that in 2020, Robinson was working as a salesperson for a company that connects shippers with trucking companies. Instead of having customers make payments to the company, Love-Robinson would have them send the money to accounts he controlled.

Love-Robinson first came to national attention in 2016 as an 18-year-old when he was arrested after opening The New Birth New Life Medical Center, identifying himself as “Dr. Love.”

He stole $30,000 from a patient in her 80s during house calls and an additional $20,000 from a doctor. He was arrested after he examined and prescribed treatment to an undercover police officer who was impersonating a patient.

Later that year while out on bail, Love-Robinson was arrested in Virginia after he tried to buy a Jaguar automobile with a stolen credit card.

The charges stem from an investigation in March 2020 when the owner of United States of Freight, a shipping broker in Delray Beach, accused Love-Robinson of rerouting payments from the business to his personal accounts.

In 2016, a then 18-year-old Love-Robinson was charged after investigators learned he was operating a medical office at 4700 North Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach and was presenting himself as a medical certified doctor when he was not. Two years later, he pleaded guilty to six charges and was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison.

On Thursday, Love-Robinson pleaded guilty to grand theft and organized scheme to defraud less than $20,000. Circuit Judge Howard Coates made the sentence concurrent and also ordered two years of probation and $10,129 in restitution.

Love-Robinson, while working as shipping broker, was convicted of having clients send money to his personal account instead of the company.

In 2018, Love-Robinson pleaded guilty to grand theft and practicing medicine without a license from a West Palm Beach office on 45th Street.

His patients say he claimed he held several degrees, including a Ph.D. and a M.D. What his patients didn’t realize was that he was just 18.

Rove-Robinson was charged with stealing more than $20,000 from an elderly Palm Beach County patient he was allegedly treating in 2015.

Love-Robinson insisted he never posed as a medical doctor, but was a naturopathic physician.

He sentenced to 3 1/2 years but was was credited for 483 days spent in jail before sentencing and was an inmate at a maximum security lockup outside Fort Myers.
