Blankenburg Indicted on 9 Additional Charges
January 26, 2009
Pediatrician Mark E. Blankenburg was indicted on four counts of gross sexual imposition, two counts of trafficking in drugs, one count of compelling prostitution, and two counts of corruption of a minor. The compelling prostitution count alleges the doctor offered compensation for sex with one of the victims in May 1994, according to Melissa Spurlock of the Butler County Prosecutor's office. In December, Dr. Blankenburg was indicted on 27 felony charges for child-sex and drug dealing. That indictment involved one male victim who is now a young adult. The prosecutor's office is investigating a second pediatrician in the area. Anyone who believes they may have been abused by a pediatrician is asked to contact the prosecutor's office at (513) 785-5201 or detective Paul Davis at the Hamilton Police Department at (513) 868-5811.
