A man accused of posing as a doctor and giving toxic buttocks injections to patients will spend 366 days in prison.
Oneal Ron Morris on Thursday pleaded guilty to practicing health care without a license. A judge rejected a previous plea agreement for 180 days, saying that sentence was too light.
"It impacted my life a lot and God has really prevailed for me," said Morris, 32.
Morris injected two women with mineral oil, superglue, and Fix-A-Flat, police say. But the women delayed coming forward, preventing confirmation.
"We've never been able to determine what it was that was injected into the victims," said Assistant State Attorney Katheline Cortes.
Morris was born a man and identifies as a woman. He must surrender on January 7.
Morris' alleged accomplice, Corey Eubanks, pleaded guilty in July. He was sentenced to one year of probation.
Morris is charged in another case in Broward County where officials say one victim died after an operation. His next court date in Broward is scheduled for Nov. 8
