Former Marquette-area doctor sentenced for 2018 charges
The former doctor was found guilty for 8 charges following a jury trial in June.
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: A former Marquette area doctor was sentenced in the 25th Circuit Court Monday for charges related to illegally distributing medication.
Jonathan Robertson was sentenced to one year of probation. He was also given 210 days in jail with credit for his previously served 210 days in jail. He will not serve more jail time.
Robertson, who worked in Harvey at Sage Premiere Healthcare Clinic, was originally charged in 2018 following an investigation for allegedly prescribing narcotics in exchange for sexual favors. His medical license was temporarily suspended at that time by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
He faced 15 counts in total, eight of which he was found guilty of by a jury in June— five counts for delivery of a controlled substance less than 50 grams, one count of delivery of a controlled substance-schedule four drug, and two counts of having less than 25 grams of a controlled substance.
He was found not guilty on all three first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges, and the jury was hung on three other counts, including third-degree CSC.
