A transgender woman, who served more than a year in prison for injecting toxic materials – including Fix-a-Flat and superglue – into the rear-ends of several women in Miami-Dade, will once again be behind bars.
Oneal Ron Morris, 36, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, followed by five years of probation, a Broward judge decided, Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reported.
Monday’s sentencing comes a month after Morris pleaded no contest to manslaughter and practicing medicine without a license, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Among those who attended the hearing: Juanita Nuby, whose 31-year-old niece Shatarka Nuby died during one of Morris’s procedures.
“There’s no closure,” she said at the hearing, which CBS4 attended. “Putting (Morris) in jail won’t bring her back. This is a court of man, all you can do is put her away and teach her a lesson.”
In 2013, Morris – whose case drew national attention after pictures of her own misshapen posterior surfaced – accepted a plea deal for one count of the illegal practice of healthcare.
Meanwhile, she faced several new charges in Broward.
On Monday, several woman told the judge they had gotten sick after Morris’ procedure, CBS4 reported.
