BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A California man accused of posing as a doctor and charging patients for phony procedures has pleaded guilty to practicing medicine without a license.
KBAK-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2sMAvsK) Alberto Gonzalez made a deal with prosecutors Monday, just as his case was set to go before a jury.
Gonzalez agreed to a two-year sentence and prosecutors dropped three misdemeanor charges. The sentence will become official at a hearing in August.
It wasn’t the first time Gonzalez was accused of posing as a doctor. In 2012, he was sentenced to two years for operating a fake clinic in his home.
One victim said she had paid $400 for injections that turned out to be water.
