Second Sentence For Impersonating A Doctor

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut man who served prison time for impersonating a doctor and performing sexual experiments on women has been sent to jail again for posing as a physician.

The Connecticut Post reports that 66-year-old Barry Lichtenthal of Putnam was sentenced Thursday in Bridgeport Superior Court to 30 days behind bars for violating his probation in the previous case.

Lichtenthal’s lawyer says his client claimed to be a retired doctor in January while talking with staff at a Mansfield gynecologist’s office about a billing dispute involving his wife’s treatment.

In 2004, Lichtenthal was sentenced to five years in prison followed by five years’ probation for posing as a doctor at his ex-wife’s psychiatric practice in Bridgeport when she was out on maternity leave and for perfoming sexual experiments on young women.
