HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Sentencing has been postponed for Dr. Mark Blankenburg.

The 53-year-old pediatrician was convicted in October on several charges stemming from the molestation of three former patients.

His attorney asked for a psychiatric evaluation before Friday's scheduled sentencing.

Blankenburg's twin brother, Scott, is awaiting trial on similar charges.
