Sexual Assault Suspect Who Posed as Doctor Arrested

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department officers have arrested a man who has been posing as a physician to create opportunities for sexual assaults.

On Sept. 30, 2009, officers from the LAPD’s Operations West Bureau, Sexual Assault Detail arrested 40-year-old Jeffrey Lynn Graybill, also known as “Dr. Richardson.”  Graybill, a resident of Arizona with no medical training, had been posing as a fertility doctor at a West Los Angeles clinic and using the Internet to solicit patrons.  The Internet advertisements attempted to entice potential clients by offering them up to $4,000 monthly for sperm donations in support of “stem cell and other research.”

Graybill would communicate with prospective victims by telephone or email before meeting with them to conduct physical examinations in Marina Del Rey and Santa Monica.  Charges against Graybill filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney include numerous counts of sexual battery by fraud, sexual penetration with a foreign object, practicing medicine without certification and identity theft.  Bail has been set at $590,000.

Officers believe there are additional victims of Graybill who haven’t yet come forward.  Anyone with information about this case or who may have been assaulted by Graybill is urged to call LAPD Operations West Bureau, Sexual Assault Detail Officers Carbonell or Malcuit at 213-473-0404.  During off-hours, calls may be directed to 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
