Bloomington psychologist Dr. Albert Fink pleaded guilty to an obstruction of justice charge Tuesday afternoon. 

In a plea deal, Fink admitted to submitting false evidence in the Vanderburgh County trial of Caleb Loving last August. Fink was charged with obstruction of justice and theft. The theft charge was dismissed in the plea agreement.

The plea agreement included an eighteen month jail sentence that was suspended to probation and a $10,000 fine. Fink must also surrender his professional licenses.
