Oneal Ron Morris, 32, today accepted the plea deal of 366 days in prison for one count of the illegal practice of healthcare. She will surrender on January 7.
She was arrested in 2011 for practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury after a patient complained the bogus doctor pumped tire sealant into her rear.
The story drew widespread attention after pictures of Morris showed she herself had a very large and wide misshapen derriere.
Up to 30 people across the U.S. came forward with claims they were scammed by the bogus doctor after her arrest.
Morris is facing more charges in Broward County, including a manslaughter count after one victim died after an operation, according to the Miami Herald.
Prosecutors say the botched operations left two women ill and disfigured.The Miami-Dade plea deal spares the victims – sensitive about the notoriety of the case – from having to testify in open court, according to prosecutors.
The Miami Herald reports that prosecutors stressed today that they were never able to determine exactly what substances Morris injected into the women.
Shaquanda Brown, of North Miami, says she had to be hospitalized for over a month and continues to suffer sickness after receiving the injections.
She said she heard about Morris through friends and was quoted a price of $1,000 by Eubanks but negotiated the price down to $700 for a series of 12 injections.
Before Mother’s Day 2010, she says she underwent her first procedure on a massage table at Eubanks’ house in Miami Gardens.
Ms Brown recalled seeing a tube of Super Glue, a black hose and a syringe but she said Morris instructed her not to look so she continued to lay face down.
She recalled Morris squeezing Super Glue onto gauze and placing the tape on the site of each injection, but the procedure stopped before she receive all of them, because they were so painful.
According to the Herald, Ms Brown was admitted to a Tampa hospital shortly after, where she stayed for over a month to recover from a series of surgeries to treat multiple abscesses. She says she also contracted a staph infection.Read More
