“What’s your drug of choice? If you play your cards right I can show you how generous I can be. I want your body in all of its glory.” (Doctor Robert Franzino)

“I can get you Valium like candy”

In Pennsylvania a physician in Westmoreland County finally confessed that he did indeed try to persuade a 15-year-old girl into a sexual relationship, in exchange for narcotics.

So now still another lab coat idiot with a medical degree is off to federal prison – this one for 6 years.

Doctor Robert Franzino, age 60, received his sentence from U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab on Tuesday.

The case began a year ago, in February 2016, when the father of the unnamed teenager contacted the Greensburg Police Department. He told police that Franzino was sending his daughter messages on Facebook, offering a “win-win” relationship. He would supply her with “mind-altering” pills, in exchange for him playing with her body.

Law enforcement set up a meet, with a woman officer posing as the girl who was exchanging texts with Franzino.

The prosecution was able to show that the text messages proved the doctor had offered to give the girl Valium in exchange for sex, In one exchange he said, “You can trust me I’m a doctor. Lol.”

When this fool showed up at the girl’s house on March 13. Police were waiting and arrested him, after which he confessed.

This wasn’t Franzino’s first stab at sexual stupidity. He had lost his medical license 10 years before, after doing the same thing – a pills-for-sex case.

As far back as 2002, Franzino was handcuffed and carted off to jail while working as an ER doctor at Excela Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg. He offered narcotics to 4 adult female patients, hoping to trade pills for their sexual favors. He was also found guilty of Insurance Fraud and drug charges and had his medical license revoked.

After Tuesday’s hearing, U.S. marshals handcuffed him and returned him to jail.
