MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The jury has found former Marquette-area doctor Jonathan Robertson guilty of eight different criminal charges after nearly seven hours of deliberation.

The jury found Robertson guilty of five counts of delivery - manufacture of a controlled substance less than 50 grams; one count of delivery- manufacture of a controlled substance - schedule four drug and marijuana; and two counts of having less than 25 grams of a controlled substance.

The jury found Robertson not guilty on all three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and was hung on three other counts, including third-degree CSC and one count of delivery of a controlled substance causing death.

In total, Robertson faced 15 different counts.

A day for sentencing will be decided Wednesday. The judge says sentencing will likely take place within the next eight to 12 weeks.
