Fake doctor gets prison for doing procedures without license


August 9, 2017

PHOENIX (AP) — A Tucson man accused of performing liposuction procedures while not having a medical license has been sentenced to nearly 39 years in prison.

Arizona prosecutors say Gustavo Nunez faced up to a 178-year prison term.

Nunez pleaded guilty in April to 28 felony charges that include aggravated assault, fraud and practicing medicine without a license.

The state Attorney General's Office says seven victims had procedures performed by Nunez between 2012 and 2014.

Authorities say three victims were hospitalized after botched surgeries and one sustained life-threatening injuries.
