HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The hamilton doctor charged with drug trafficking and sexual misconduct with a minor was back in court Thursday to set a date for his trial.
But now the earliest that will happen is next week.
Earlier this week, Mark Blankenburg's defense attorney filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court to lower his bond, so the judge granted a continuance until next Friday.
Blankenburg faces several charges, including one count of corruption of a minor, two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of corrupting another with drugs, 17 counts of trafficking in drugs and four counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs.
