STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. — A teenager who made national headlines last year for allegedly pretending to be a doctor in Florida has been sentenced for charges in Stafford County.

The now 20-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison with four years suspended.

In September, Love-Robinson went to Kargar Motors on Jefferson Davis Highway to buy a 2013 Lexus 350 for $35,000, according to General Manager Mike Hickman.

Prosecutors said he used a elderly relative’s social security number and information without permission to co-sign on the car.

“He fooled me at first,” Hickman told CBS 6 in September. “He’s really good. He’s a con artist.”

Love-Robinson is still facing multiple charges for posing as a medical doctor.
