Couple Sentenced for Practicing Plastic Surgery without Medical License

In the state of Nevada, a husband and wife team has been convicted in a strange case and has been given the maximum sentence for their offenses. According to news sources, the pair offered illegal plastic surgery services, which resulted in the death of a young woman. Now, the 56-year-old husband and 47-year-old wife will have to serve four to eight months in prison.

Back in August, the couple pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter after it was discovered that the husband had been practicing without a medical license. They were also charged with conspiracy.

During court, the victim's mother asked that the judge impose the maximum sentence because the defendants left the victim to die after she suffered an adverse reaction to the anesthetic they injected. Instead of calling for help or taking the victim to the hospital, the pair attempted to flee the country.
