Malachi Love-Robinson

A Florida teen who impersonated a doctor will spend the next three-and-a-half years behind bars. A Palm Beach County judge handed down the light sentence to Malachi Love-Robinson, 20, who pleaded guilty to grand theft, practicing medicine without a license, running a medical clinic without a license, and a plethora of other charges.

The well-spoken teen plead guilty to avoid a trial. He was facing up to 90 years in prison if convicted on the 14 charges, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Love-Robinson was arrested last year on charges that he stole personal checks from an 86-year-old West Palm Beach woman.

Court documents show Love-Robinson drained Anita Morrison’s checking account to make $34,504 worth of payments for his Nissan car loans and credit cards.

One Bank of America teller who cashed forged checks for "Mr. Love" wrote in a sworn statement, “I found it very odd that a ‘doctor’ at the age of 18-19 years old runs errands in a white coat, full name badge and a stethoscope."

Love-Robinson allegedly tried to buy a $35,000 Jaguar using his 73-year-old grandmother's social security number without her permission.

He operated the New Birth New Life Holistic Medical Center & Urgent Care on N. Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach, Florida in 2015.

His fraudulent clinic employed a small staff, including his family members, and he listed his age as 25 on the medical center's Facebook.com page.

City health officials began investigating Love-Robinson in October 2015 after a Palm Beach Narcotics Task Force agent posed as a patient seeking a physical exam.

  • Ni Ni

    He got off light, but im sure this wont be the last we hear about him scamming. If memory serves me correctly, he continued after he got caught the first time. How did he open that practice? His parents clearly approved.

  • You Could Never

    this story still tickles the shat outta me

  • Kanyade

    Good! He's not so special to practice medicine without having done the education and put in the time (residency) like all the rest!

    Also, dumb move. Doctors usually don't wear their lab coats outside of the hospital/office.

  • Marlika

    If he were white he would be working for the FBI like the white guy behind Catch me if you can. I forget his real name.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He must have been primarily seeing the elderly at his clinic. It´s crazy.

  • tintin

    me too, even reading this i'm giggling.

    This is funny

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Bright boy who put his intelligence to misuse.

  • Bonsai

    Why not just be a doctor for real and go to school and get his license? Maybe his grades weren’t good.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Me too. Whispers so no one thinks I'm off my rocker too much: I'm impressed with him. He could've went and bought a kilo & a few pounds, but he paid bills & tried to get a car to keep the facade up.

    Not saying I condone, but I ain't that mad ?????

  • Dahl

    Me too. I know what he did was wrong, but he was so thorough! I’m ashamedly impressed...

  • InsecureNEVA

    Go ahead and go to college while you in prison chile......

  • Yardgirl

    Glad I am not the only one!! The fact that a young black man got away with this speaks to how intelligent he is and no lie, I am impressed.

  • Diva_woman

    He needs mental help not jail. This child clearly has some type of delusional personality disorder but I guess it was fun while it lasted. I’m pretty sure he will go right back to scamming when he gets out.

  • Diva_woman

    Clearly and it says he had a staff that included family members. Something wrong with the whole crew lol

  • Jaclyn2016

    ??

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Or he´s just a scammer.

  • Ni Ni

    He's probably smart as a whistle, but crazy.

  • Ni Ni

    Oh ok, yep they're all nuts.

  • justlooking

    If he were white he would have got ankle monitor.

    I hope he can be successful later down the road. He obviously is slick and has a sense of style for a young age. Doctors DO drive high end cars.

  • justlooking

    Iono think he crazy, he just young and simple

  • Ryan

    So did the family and other folks who worked at the "clinic" get in trouble since they were in on it?

  • justlooking

    Frank Abagnale...Just watched it the other day again. Cracks me up every time.

  • justlooking

    Lmao

  • Wreckognize Game

    He will be in jail treating and diagnosing the other inmates. He will have a lot in his commissary as payment for treatments.

  • justlooking

    Ikr

  • tintin

    imagine how many vaginas he was inspecting...my goodness.

  • Tennessean

    i was just thinking, what about his "patients" lol, not funny tho.

  • Tennessean

    He really will. Inmates probably like, "man, you 'bout da closes we gon get" lol

  • Tennessean

    how was he paying them?

  • Tennessean

    He wanted to see how far he could get, others do it all the time just not at this degree...lol.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Right...White kid rapes a woman and he got 6 months, the reasoning being: anything longer would mess up his life.....This kid who is much younger than the rapist, doesn't even get the consideration of a mental health assessment

  • Tennessean

    TWELVE mo' YEARS of school!!! lol, he chose not.

  • Tennessean

    most brothers do...

  • Marlika

    The things that man got away with.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    He deserves treatment not imprisonment.

    America's justice system will tamper any signs of a crafty black person.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Now just think if he used his wits for something constructive! Because he’s consistent like a muhf.....

  • InsecureNEVA

    He can now inspect "boi posseys" in prison.

  • suganspice68

    maybe he was inspired that movie"Catch me if you can"

  • Stuffin10

    What a waste, he should've took the time to get his license too practice ,minus the thief and he could've had whatever he wanted, illegal,......no common sense!

  • Yoni7

    Would this be considered a "disease", like they are calling the YT heroin addicts?
    I also saw somewhere that they (THEY being - WHO - World Health Organization) are now calling gaming a "disease" as well.

  • You Could Never

    This is the FUNNIEST part.

  • You Could Never

    That movie was good too. And he was everything. A doctor. A lawyer. A pilot.

  • You Could Never

    Wait what type of gaming? I know gambling is considered a disease. But gaming as in running game lol?

  • Trey

    fraud is a white collar crime....

  • Ryan

    Good question. He couldn't have been getting much. Most people wouldn't trust somebody who looks that young. How'd he get clients??

  • http://www.facebook.com/juanhustle @JuanHustle

    The movie "Catch Me If You Can" with Leonardo DiCaprio comes to mind every time I see this dude lol

  • 100milesperhour

    He may have a personality disorder, but that doesn't equal crazy. He's a sociopath that happens to be very industrious & cunning.

  • Nita

    Video games smh

  • Nita

    I thought the same thing. They knew his ass wasn't a real doctor and they worked for him

  • imright

    i cant believe how long he got away with it ???

  • We Can Do This

    As we know mental illness is a disability and there is no such thing as a disabled black person.

    There has always been a huge disparity in who is considered mentally unstable and it's almost never a black person.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    HIS FAMILY WAS IN ON IT!
    OK, before I thought he was just "Special" but now, Con Artist.

  • Yoni7

    LOL No. LOL Video gaming. LMAOOOOO!

  • Blue

    But Trump still walking around free.

  • bemetoo

    "City health officials began investigating Love-Robinson in October 2015 after a Palm Beach Narcotics Task Force agent posed as a patient seeking a physical exam"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Even though hes guilty and a big ass lying scammer why did a NARCOTICS TASK FORCE AGENT go investigate his place of business was it because he was young and black??

  • unknown user

    I have an odd feeling hes going to get out and hurt somebody. Cant put my finger on it. He just seems very off

  • Jack Blakk

    Is Umar Johnson next?

  • Shenanigans1

    Yeah something is very wrong

  • Miss Thang

    This is crazy. I can't believe this kid did all this. I barely have motivation to go to my job everyday.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    He was intelligent to put the money he stole on his car loan and bills. He had a game plan?

  • KeepItG

    I don’t see no one petitioning for this kid like they did for meek mill??? ???...his time is bs! Did anybody die or was hurt?? Or it’s just because he’s young black and educated and didn’t give af about Uncle Sam or the red WHITE n blue government! I could see him getting probabtion but 3years!! U got ppl out here esp White getting slapped on the wrist for causing fatal accidents amongst other worst things and the punishment is so minimum! Sad!

  • disqus_I4L4fHNmJO

    He stole, he forged checks, he used other peoples social security numbers (including his own grandmother) to pay for his lifestyle, he posed as a medical doctor and attempted to give uninformed medical advice to the sick - not as an act of philanthropy but for financial gain. He's a smart kid, but a criminal nonetheless.

  • Victor Nathan

    in there, he 'll have a lot of patients to perform anal examinations on or vice versa

  • Trace da Ace

    I still cant get over how he was running a practice.... I mean what he did was wrong as hell....but his hustle game was strong as hell....to be able to pull this mess off??? I mean damn.....damn.

  • You Could Never

    Im crying.

  • Dennis Byron

    wow...lol

  • Dennis Byron

    Or writing fake prescriptions.

  • Tennessean

    Right!!! lol

  • klwbaby

    If a doctor prescribes prescription narcotics, they have to a DEA number. So because he wasn't an actual doctor, his fake DEA number probably caused a red flag in the system so they had to go an investigate him and his "practice".

  • Karen Brady

    Now he can examine endless penises asnd anuses.

  • Karen Brady

    Lmao

  • Karen Brady

    Lol

  • Renee26

    ???

  • OP2

    And that hustling con artist game usually end to a life in prison. He is no different than the next hustling con artist.

    What a fool! -he could have utilized his time to hustle courses in undergrad leading to him getting into med schools. Instead, he wasted it over the years hustling and conning people out of the money and property. Jail will suit him well! -it'll be a reality check for him because he might not want to ever behave his way back into that life again. ijs

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    He's gonna be finessing the inmates. Giving them false check ups and everything. ??

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    He's going to make one hell of a businessman someday. Lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. He endangered people's lives. Nobody died, but they could have.

    I think he got off pretty light, considering all the crimes they got him for.

  • Ghost

    Well he is pretty "crafty" for a young age. Its obvious he is intelligent..now we can only hope while he's doing he 3.5 years he will write a business plan and come out using all of this craftiness doing HONEST work.

    Which will include staying away from your family members because i'm sure they're not innocent saints in all of this...got off easy...better take advantage...

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    ???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Why would anybody look at this babyfaced 19 year-old kid and think he's really a doctor? That's just really baffling to me.

  • Ghost

    I believe the majority of his family is crafty...this is learned behavior..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He's a criminal. He commited fraud. That's a white collar crime but it's still a crime. The dude has a criminal mind, he doesn't have a disease that needs "treatment".
    And 3 1/2 years isn't all that bad considering all the crimes they nailed him for.

  • NeverSurprised

    He's young enough and smart enough to overcome this. When he gets out, he can get a literary agent. There's definitely enough interesting details here for a book about how he pulled this whole thing off. If the "hot felon" can craft a lucrative career after jail, so can this kid.

  • NeverSurprised

    Yep.

  • NeverSurprised

    And under Florida's good time law, he'll only have to serve 85% of the sentence. He'll be out in no time.

    With the right literary agent, he can hit the talk show circuit to promote the book he'll probably write while in jail.

  • pecancandy

    What in the entire fluck, and his family was on board.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    hell yeah.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Lol I couldn't do what he did if I tried. The fear of getting caught would stop me in my tracks.

  • Lock him up

    Nothing is funny about him taking advantage of what I’m sure was the vulnerable elderly running the risk of killing them. His family members should be arrested too. He is the type to murk his entire family. I’m sorry but he is super dangerous. Probably lacks empathy, remorse, guilt, and shame. He stole from his own grandmother! I can’t stand people who abuse and scam the vulnerable.

  • Solstice

    Thank you! Good to know!??

  • Solstice

    I saw that video game ? mess too ?. Just like the legal heroin (morphine,Percocet,OxyContin) it only becomes a ‘disease’ when yt pepo are affected. ? I have the prescription heroin too. But unless I’m damn near dying in pain and literally can’t move, I don’t take them shits. ?. Now for my happy pill cocktail, I do benefit and enjoy my low dose Valium. ??

  • klwbaby

    ??

  • NeverSurprised

    ?????

  • NeverSurprised

    Absolutely. I’m a law and order kind of gal, but the sheer intellect mixed with street smarts present in this kid is beyond impressive. Someone this smart is DEFINITELY going to put his jail time to good use. He will be studying and writing every day and will be a business force to be reckoned with when he gets released ( in Florida, he only has to serve 85% of his sentence).

  • bemetoo

    thanks

  • bemetoo

    lol true

  • klwbaby

    No problem. ?

  • MissyJ

    He's the next catch me if you can

  • Stacey J

    Yes he was wrong....but if you walked into the office and saw this black Doogie Howser acting child saying he was a doctor....there ain't any kind of alarm bells that would go off in your head or anything? It takes over 10 years to complete med school and a residency....even if he was a genius child...you wouldn't wonder how he started med school before he started puberty?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I hope learns from this and stops it! He needed serious mental health assistance! I hope he gets good direction and mentoring while he's locked up, and doesn't just learn how to better scam while in prison!

    If he were whyte he would have a book deal and a film in the works because there is a backstory, I wouldn't mind seeing!

  • ?Royalty?

    It's about time they locked up that little weirdo. Did his family get jail time too? They know they didn't put him through med school and yet they worked with him at the clinic. ?

  • bella28498 .

    he's lucky.....ni99a was acting as a gynecologist lmao

  • Yardgirl

    Word!!

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    Wow, this story is wild!!!!! Yikes!!!!!!!

  • Gone Too Far

    I don’t think it’s a case of crazy. I think he knows he’s not an MD obviously, but just decided to see how far he could get away with all of this and he got away with it for a while. And he’s very consistent with it. No doubt ‘credit cards and the scammers’ refers to him so he will do time for it

  • Gone Too Far

    Some people find school tedious and like fast money hence becoming a scammer like him. Maybe that was the case

  • Gone Too Far

    This is a case of Mike Ross from Suits but a little worse because it’s real life lol

  • Gone Too Far

    He probably spoke really well and did all his research to study how a real doctors mannerisms are at work

  • OP2

    Losers find school tedious & prefer the lazy route of fast money which usually comes via fraud, solicitations, drugs, stealing, etc.. -all which lease to catching a case and going to prison, if they live to tell about it. But, to each their own. Losers vs. the mentality of winners. ijs.

  • D96

    yesss mike thought that since he was a genius, he wouldn’t need to go thru the proper channels like everybody else, this young man shares that gall.

  • dontgetblocked

    He's going to leave prison a smarter and craftier criminal.

  • the guest

    Worked FOR him at the clinic. LOL

  • the guest

    He'll never stop. He'll run scams in prison. He'll learn new scams in prison. And with a felon record he'll feel like he has no choice but to resort to scamming when he gets out.

  • the guest

    The whole family was getting dressed up for work everyday and going to the office. Insane.

  • the guest

    He's a genius. I can't wait to see the movie.

  • the guest

    It's crazy because he did go to work everyday at his medical practice.

  • the guest

    Geniuses are typically off.

  • Hmmm~?

    Obviously not too intelligent if he’s running errands in full doctor attire. Same thing as these fake army veterans walking around in fatigues. It’s obvious they’re faking. This is an example of somebody doing something they shouldn’t but no one really cared enough to dig deeper. Until the cops got involved anyways.

  • MRiGOThim

    this happened in Dallas too where a man was giving free gynecological testings & come to find out he had rented a space thru on a white coat & women was coming in by the dozens
