Psychiatrist Sentenced to 18 Months in Jail

Psychiatrist Ian Martin of Launceston, Tasmania, Australia has been sentenced to 18 months jail.


Martin hired a patient to ‘intimidate’ another patient with whom Martin had been having sex.


Martin was found guilty by a jury in the criminal court this week.  He has a 10 month non-parole period.

    This Martin is just behaving like a normal psychiatrist the world over. Yet our justice system uses them for expert testimony in important court cases and governments fund their harmful treatments. Psychiatrists are the ones who are truly insane. It’s time we drove them out of business. Let them get real jobs so they can actually contribute to society. However, they’re criminals and won’t work for a living.
