Herbalist Accused of Child Abuse After Harbor Boy’s Death Sentenced to Jail
An herbalist who treated a Harbor Gateway boy who died of diabetes complications received a four-month jail sentence, officials said Monday.
A jury last week found Timothy Morrow guilty of one count of practicing medicine without a license after a two-week trial, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
On Monday, a court sentenced him to 120 days in county jail and 48 months of summary probation. He must also pay a $5,000 fee, restitution to the 13-year-old victim’s family for funeral expenses, remove or withdraw publications and videos that recommend using herbs instead of following medical advice and issue a clear warning label on all his herbal products. Morrow was required to complete a one-year child abuser’s treatment counseling program as well.
