Former Iowa doctor in sex case receives sentence
DAVENPORT (AP) — A former Muscatine doctor who was accused of prescribing drugs to his patients in exchange for sex was sentenced Thursday to eight years in prison.
David Gierlus, 60, of Illinois City, Ill., received the sentence at a lengthy hearing where attorneys spent most of the time arguing over how much of a fine he should be given, the Quad-City Times reported.
Gierlus’ attorney, Jeff Lang, suggested $12,000. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cliff Cronk asked for $500,000.
