RENO, NV - A Sparks man who pleaded guilty to performing cosmetic
surgery without a medical license has been sentenced to 19-48 months in prison, but the judge suspended that time so the man can be immediately deported to Mexico.
Edgar Orozco-Abundis had pleaded guilty to practicing medicine without a license, and was sentenced Tuesday morning. Washoe District Judge David Hardy set the sentence and told Orozco-Abundis not ever to come back to the United States.
He was accused of targeting illegal immigrants who were looking
for nose jobs, stomach staplings and other cosmetic surgery.
Police say three victims were not seriously injured by the
Orozco-Abundis told police he was a licensed medical doctor in
Mexico, and has been in the United States illegally.
