A Washington area doctor who put abortion pills in his pregnant girlfriend’s drink, causing her to lose the baby, has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Brook Fiske, 37, was almost four months pregnant when Sikander Imran poisoned her tea with four abortion pills. She began suffering contractions and was rushed to hospital where she lost her unborn baby son.
Sikander Imran pleaded guilty to fetal homicide in Arlington County, Virginia, after being charged last June with the premeditated killing of a foetus of another and illegally causing abortion or miscarriage. Fetal homicide, a Class 2 felony, is punishable by up to 40 years in prison, but after Ms Fiske asked for leniency, a judge sentenced him to 20 years, with 17 years suspended.He also had his medical license revoked and faces deportation to Pakistan after his release.
Ms Fiske and Mr Imran had been dating on and off for about three years but were living in different states when she discovered she was pregnant.
