Malachi Love-Robinson, 18, stole more than $34,000 from a client, authorities say

The teen was charged with practicing medicine without a license last month

(CNN) —  

A teenager who authorities say impersonated a doctor has been arrested again and now faces charges of fraud and larceny.

CNN affiliate WPBF reports that Malachi Love-Robinson, 18, turned himself in Tuesday night, according to the Palm Beach County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say Love-Robinson used the checking account information from one of his clients to pay off more than $34,000 in car payments.

He appeared before a judge Wednesday and was ordered to undergo a mental examination. The teen was granted supervised released.

CNN attempted to contact Love-Robinson’s attorney, Andrew Stine, for comment.

Despite the new charges, Stine spoke highly of his client in an interview with CNN affiliate WPTV.

“He has the entrepreneurial spirit of someone like a Donald Trump or a Bill Gates. I’ve never met somebody – and I’m much older obviously – who has such entrepreneurial spirit,” Stine said. “If it was channeled maybe in a different direction things could be different here today.”

Love-Robinson was charged last month by authorities with practicing medicine without a license.

He has denied the claims.

“I’m not portraying as an M.D. I never said I’ve gone to school to be an M.D.,” he told ABC News.

Authorities in Florida carried out an operation in which an undercover officer visited Love-Robinson’s office, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

Love-Robinson physically examined the officer and provided medical advice, said the statement, which detailed a nearly two-week investigation that culminated in his arrest.

As police led Love-Robinson out of his office in handcuffs, he said, “I’m hurt because of the accusations and allegations. But like I said, this is not the first time where I’ve been accused and I will pursue this. And when I do, you guys will know,” according to WPBF.

The website for Love-Robinson’s practice lists the teen as its president, CEO and founder. It refers to Love-Robinson as “Dr.” and places acronyms after his name, including Ph.D. and HHP-C, which is used for those involved in home health and personal care. A Ph.D. is generally not a medical degree.

CNN’s Tina Burnside, Keith Allen, Jeffrey Acevedo and Joseph Netto contributed to this report.
