Former fake surgeon charged with felony child sex abuse

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Lucas Orlin Ebert, who made national headlines after he was arrested in 2011 for impersonating an OHSU doctor, is back in court on seven felony charges of sex abuse involving a minor.

Ebert, 27, of Gresham, was in court Monday. Court documents say the victim is a girl known to Ebert. During Monday's court appearance, Ebert was instructed to have no contact with the victim. He is being held on no bail because of a parole violation.

The documents say Ebert is a student at Portland Community College. His next court date is Tuesday, June 13 at 9:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.

In 2011, Ebert posed as a doctor at OHSU for at least two weeks and fooled a female patient into believing he was a plastic surgery resident. 

Ebert has a checkered criminal history. He has been convicted of 11 felonies, including criminal mistreatment, practicing medicine without a license, negotiating a bad check, identity theft and forgery.
