CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A suburban doctor sent to prison for trading pills for sex wants out of jail early.

In 2008, Doctor Herbert Medoff was convicted for giving pills to six women in exchange for sex. He even gave pills to a male and said he would steer women towards him.

Judge David Matia sentenced Medoff to four years in prison. Now, Medoff has written to the judge after serving half his time claiming he is now a different person and ashamed.

Medoff's attorney also pointed out in court records that Medoff will be 77-years-old in September. He also noted that Medoff already gave up his medical license so he can't be a repeat offender.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutors say they will fight any early release. The judge will have the final word.

Should a pervert former doctor who's a senior citizen get a break?
