Timothy Paul Gatschet, 59, of Victoria, was sentenced Monday in Ellis County court to three years and seven months in prison. He pleaded guilty in March to criminal use of an explosive device and attempted use of an explosive device.
Gatschet gave up his physician's license in April rather than face disciplinary proceedings by the Kansas State Board of Healing
The board had taken away his license in 1993 for inappropriate conduct. In 1996, he was convicted of three felony counts of attempted enticement of a child.
The board reinstated Gatschet's license in 1998, but limited his practice to geriatrics.
