Jeffrey Graybill -- Arizona Man Who Posed as Fertility Doc to Molest Grown Men -- Gets Prison Time, Probation for Life
An Arizona man was sentenced to prison time this morning after pleading guilty to charges that he posed as a fertility doctor in order to molest grown men.
Jeffrey Graybill, who used the name "Doctor Richardson" to practice faux-medicine, was sentenced in Maricopa County Superior Court to two nine-year prison sentences. Those sentences will run consecutively, court officials tell New Times.
Additionally, Graybill was sentenced to lifetime probation.
Graybill, 42, was arrested on September 30, 2009.
With absolutely no medical training, Graybill posted ads on Craigslist to solicit victims, offering to pay men as much as $4,000 to be sperm donors for "stem cell [or] other research."
Graybill would meet the men either at their homes or his, and would "conduct physical examinations," fondling his victims in the process.
Investigators say they were able to identify 24 of Graybill's victims in Arizona and California -- including a Scottsdale medical doctor, whose identity Graybill stole, and four men from Phoenix, Glendale, and Tempe, whom Graybill sexually assaulted -- after going through "Dr. Richardson's" emails.
