A Florida man who was arrested and convicted of impersonating a doctor when he was a teenager was sentenced to 28 months in prison last week for stealing thousands of dollars from his employer in a separate scheme.
Malachi Love-Robinson, who is now 25 years old, pleaded guilty to grand theft and organized scheme to defraud. He was working as a salesperson at a business that connects shippers with trucking companies in 2020 and had customers make payments to him instead of his employer, according to court documents.
