This new Ohio case is just too bizarre and disturbing. Seems like we have an epidemic among the medical profession these days:

BUTLER COUNTY — In a bizarre case of alleged child sex abuse, two Butler County pediatricians - who also are twin brothers - are facing a 76-count indictment that accuses them of molesting some of the young males they had sworn to help.

The indictment, released Friday, accuses Mark Blankenburg, who practiced primarily in Hamilton, of 54 charges, replacing 36 counts he had faced since an initial indictment in December.

His brother, Scott, who practiced in Fairfield, faces 22 charges.

The sex charges in the dual indictment revolve around seven accusers - three tied to each doctor separately and a seventh young man who accuses both doctors, officials said. Several accusers are former patients of the doctors.

The twin doctors, both 53 years old, have practiced in the area for more than 20 years. Combined, the doctors' patient roster contains 6,000 to 7,000 names.

The 54 revised charges against Mark Blankenburg accuse him of committing sex acts on minors, providing them with pre>

I wouldn't prejudge the two doctors until the FACTS and investigations are done. The Judicial System is quick to look at something with a bend pair of eyeglassses. These two men could be innocent. We just don't know yet. Its reads like a nightmare of a situation for sure. From the feedback on the newspaper article itself some stupid uneducated people are calling these two doctors "homosexuals" because of the gender of the alleged victims.

Just because someone is male assaults or victimizes another male doesn't make the person committing the assault "a homosexual".
We don't call a man who rapes or sexua assaults a young female "a heterosexual" assault. So it really bothers me that people connect male to male sexual victimization with homosexuality.

I have no doubt they're guilty - but then I've never trusted doctor's much ... I have to admit, though ... one of my favorite lines out of the story

The twin doctors, both 53 years old...

If they are twins - is there any reason they both WOULDN'T be the same age??????

More horrible details today. Scott Blankenburg has been charged (among other things) for fondling a five year old boy and having caches of child porn and yet he is STILL allowed to treat little kids -with a nurse present. Who in god's name would send their child to this guy?

"“He was an A and B student, after that I couldn't get him to go to school or anything. He just dropped out,” the father said."

Wow..........sounds a LOT like the coping path that I took after my abuse. I stopped giving a shit about anything, my grades/future being one of them.

Dr. Mark Blankenburg was convicted of 16 counts of child molestation yesterday in Ohio. He and his identical twin brother Dr. Scott Blankenburg were arrested in March for a total of 75 counts that included child molestation, child pornography. Dr. Scott Blankenburg will be tried in April. What's astonishing is that it only took seven months from their arrest to convict one of them. Here's an Associated Press story

Sean Stockstill, 23, said Mark Blankenburg, who was also his pediatrician, has been a good friend to him and his family and to the city of Hamilton. Stockstill said the doctor never harmed him.

"There's not a single mean thing on his body," Stockstill said."


I would venture to say that he probably wasn't his "type", hence, he was never violated.

Hauser: Or perhaps Blankenburg is paying off Stockstill to keep quiet? I am sure there are many more victims out there who have not come forward.
