HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A local pediatrician already in jail on drug and sex charges, now faces additional charges.
A Butler County grand jury indicted Dr. Mark Blankenburg on two counts of corruption of a minor, one count of compelling prostitution, one count of drug trafficking and three counts of gross sexual imposition.
Blankenburg was arrested last month on charges he had an inappropriate relationship with a male patient.
Butler County prosecutor Robin Piper says the additional charges stem from more people in the community coming forward with accusations against Dr. Blankenburg.
"We deeply appreciate people in the community coming forward with information," Piper said in a statement. "It has been very helpful. Those new charges are a result of some of the information received."
Piper also said his office is now investigating an additional pediatrician.
"We encourage anyone who believes they have been victimized or know of any wrongdoing by any local pediatricia to contact the Butler County Prosecutor's Office," said Piper.
That number is 513-785-5201.
Blankenburg will be in court on Friday to be arrainged on the new charges.
He's being held in the Butler County Jail on a one million dollar bond.
