HAMILTON — A former Hamilton pediatrician convicted of molesting three former patients and paying them in drugs and cash to keep quiet is set to return to court today, April 22, to plead to 12 child pornography charges remaining against him, according to court records.
A “plea or trial setting” has been scheduled for 2:30 p.m. for Mark Blankenburg before Butler County Common Pleas Court Judge Keith Spaeth, according to the county clerk of courts website.
Blankenburg’s trial on 12 charges involving alleged child pornography is to begin May 24, so it seems likely pleas will be entered.
