Jeffrey Lynn Graybill, 40, of Phoenix is accused of pretending to be "Dr. Robert Richardson" and soliciting sperm donors for the nonexistent Fertility Clinic of West Los Angeles.
Graybill was brought back to Los Angeles after being arrested Wednesday in Arizona, investigators said. He had moved from Marina del Rey to Phoenix in August.
Investigators believe that there may be more than two dozen other victims in California and Arizona.
Although he had no medical license, Graybill allegedly advertised himself as a physician through Internet listings on Craigslist and solicited potential clients, offering up to $4,000 monthly for sperm donations for "stem cell and other research."
Graybill, a property manager, had been trained as an emergency medical technician and used leftover medical equipment such as a stethoscope and blood pressure monitor to convince men that he was a doctor.
"He carried a black bag like a doctor,".
Graybill arranged to meet the first victim at the man's home June 10 and the second on June 20 at an apartment Graybill managed. He is accused of posing as a physician and fondling both men, Carbonell said.
After Graybill failed to pay the men, one of them filed a complaint with Los Angeles police.
Prosecutors have charged Graybill with 11 felonies, including practicing medicine without certification, identity theft, sexual penetration and sexual battery by fraud.

Funny thing is, if he’d just advertised ‘free gropes’, he’d have no problem finding ‘customers’ in L.A.
List this under “Things I don’t want to know at 6:30 AM”.
Sorta lends new meaning to the concept of playing doctor, doesn’t it. What American tradition will be defiled nest? Spin the Bottle? Only in California, and I say that as one who lived in the State for well more than half of my life.
Such a practice would get a LOT more donors and bigger “deposits” with pretty FEMALE doctors and nurses! LOL.
