Joshua D. Baron, 40, who was a pediatric neurologist, pleaded guilty in March to providing some 149 prescriptions for drugs such as Adderall, Xanax, Percocet and OxyContin to 16 people, in exchange for sex or cash, the United States Attorney's office said in a statement.

Baron's victims were women and he used the pseudonym Robert Crumb - the name of the satirical cartoonist - in his advertisements in the "Casual Encounters" and "Men Who Would Pay" sections of Craigslist, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
