SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A Florida abortionist who was arrested in South Carolina in 2015 on drug charges pleaded guilty this week and has been sentenced to five years probation and over $26,000 in fines.

James Pendergraft, who is known for his ownership of several abortion facilities in Florida, pleaded guilty on Monday to ten criminal counts, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession or distribution of prescription drugs without a prescription, and manufacturing or possession of Schedule I & II substances.
