HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A nurse who worked for Dr. Scott Blankenburg and filled in at Dr. Mark Blankenburg's office took the stand Friday morning.
Dr. Mark Blankenburg is on trial for several drug and sex-related charges. His twin brother, Scott, will face trial in April.
The nurse revealed that she was given tapes by a mutual friend of hers and the doctors. On the tapes, audio of Dr. Mark's voice was heard, and the conversations were of a sexual nature, including noises and sound effects of oral sex.
"There was grunting, groaning and slurping noises," said the nurse.
The grandmother of one of the alleged victims also took the stand. She says she noticed an immediate behavior change of her grandson once he started going to Dr. Blankenburg at the age of 10.
She also says he told her that when he was a teenager, Dr. Mark was his friend and he would give him money when she refused.
Another alleged victim then took the stand, saying Dr. Blankenburg had been his doctor since he was born. The witness stated when he was about nine years old, the doctor inappropriately touched his genitals.
The now-24-year-old alleged victim says the doctor would play games with it while fondling him and staring him in the eyes, smiling. The witness said he told his mother about the touching issues and he says she told him, "He's a doctor, he has a process...it's his job."
The alleged victim says he stopped seeing Blankenburg when he was 15. But saw him again when he was 16 for a work permit physical. The witness says Blankenburg gave him $10 once, and that was it.
The witness has never been arrested or in trouble with the law, unlike the other three alleged victims in this trial.
