Grand larceny: Docs arrested for alleged illegal surgeries

Two doctors are facing charges in connection with operating on more than 60 people at a Upper East Side Manhattan clinic and allegedly disfiguring a patient. The New York plastic surgeons are facing charges of grand larceny and first-degree assault, among others. One of the men lost his plastic surgery license in 2007 for misconduct, including incompetence, gross negligence and being morally unfit.

The licensed doctor rented an operating room at a well-known clinic where he and the other man allegedly performed costly cosmetic procedures ranging from $8,000 to $10,000 for four years, according to the Office of the Attorney General. Apparently, the two led patients to believe that both of them were licensed to perform procedures. The pair had patients either pay by cash or with a check made out to one of the licensed doctor's relatives.

The unlicensed surgeon was held on a bond of $4 million, while the licensed doctor's bond was set at $2 million. If they are found guilty, they could face 25-year prison sentences. The two will each need exemplary criminal defense attorneys on their legal teams.

Grand larceny is a serious felony charge that carries hefty penalties in New York state. Those facing such charges would do well to work in tandem with their criminal defense team to present the best defense possible in relation to the charges they face. An attorney will make sure his or her clients were taken into custody under the rules of the law and will address any violations for the client in court.
