HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Twin pediatricians will be in Butler County court on Thursday.

Mark Blankenburg's court hearing will set a trial date for pornography charges he still faces, and the judge will discuss a request by the prosecution that he be sentenced on charges from his first trial before his second one begins.

Mark Blankenburg was convicted last month on several sex, drug and money laundering charges involving young male patients.

Scott Blankenburg's hearing will focus on pre-trial discovery motions and a discussion of what evidence can be used in his trial. He faces similar charges than his brother and his trial is scheduled to begin in April.
