          ‘I 100% Believe That I Was Drugged’ Claims Woman Whose Hypnotist-Lawyer Went To Prison On Kidnapping Charges


          January 5, 2017

          In a high-profile criminal case, former Ohio divorce attorney Michael Fine, 59, pleaded guilty in September 2016 to five counts attempted kidnapping and one count kidnapping with a sexual motivation. Fine, who was accused of using hypnosis to manipulate and molest half a dozen women, was subsequently sentenced to 12 years in prison. Since that time, more women have surfaced with similar stories of abuse by Fine. One of his former clients has recently alleged he drugged and possibly assaulted her.

          Debbie claims Michael Fine was her lawyer for four years, and during that time, she claims he “did a lot of inappropriate things.” Debbie claims once when she went to see Fine at his office; he gave her some tea. “The next thing I remember, I was using the restroom, and I had a feeling he was standing outside the door,” says Debbie. She says later in her car, she felt disoriented and was unable to find her way home “It took me 25 minutes to get there. It took me two hours to get home.”

          “I 100% believe that I was drugged. No doubt,” asserts Debbie. She says she didn’t report the incident to police at the time. That was in 2013, she says. About a year later, she says, a friend alerted her to Fine’s arrest after seeing a news report. Debbie says she was shocked. “Because all those red flags that I let go were coming up – This really did happen.”

          On Thursday’s Dr. Phil, Debbie admits she’s been self-medicating to cope with the incident. Find out where you can watch, here.
