HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The trial of a Butler County doctor has been postponed.

Dr. Scott Blankenburg was scheduled to go on trial next week. Dr. Blankenburg and his twin brother, Mark, are accused of sexually abusing underage patients and then buying their silence with drugs and money.

The trial was delayed at the request of both the prosecution and defense, with both sides saying they needed more time to prepare their cases.

The trial probably won't begin until next year.

Dr. Mark Blankenburg's trial is still scheduled for October.
