Ohio doctor gets 21 years in prison in rape case

Published:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A former emergency room physician in Ohio has been sentenced to 21 years in prison for sexually assaulting four girls between 2002 and 2011.

Keith Goldblum was sentenced Wednesday following his conviction last month on eight counts of rape of a child under the age of 13, two counts each of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and voyeurism, and one count of attempted voyeurism.

The Montgomery County Prosecutor's office says Goldblum assaulted the girls at his home near Dayton and victimized two of them by raping them for several years.

Goldblum's doctor's license has been suspended and his sentence also requires him to register as a sex offender every six months for 25 years upon his release from prison.
