Today Kristina Ross, the woman arrested for practicing medicine without a license after allegedly offering breast exams in two area bars, was sentenced to 360 days in jail with 157 days deducted for time served.
Ross will serve out the balance of 203 days in county jail followed by two years of unsupervised probation. Ross also must abide by two no contact orders with the victims and pay a $1,000 fine, as well as pay court costs and an additional $700 for the reimbursement of the psycho-sexual evaluation she underwent as a part of the plea to reduce the charges from felony practicing medicine without a license to two misdemeanor charges of battery.
Judge John Hawley called Ross a con and said that although the case was presented in the media as titillating and, some thought, humorous, there was nothing funny about the humiliation the victims were made to feel by Ross’ actions.
After a psycho-sexual evaluation, the judge said the therapist who evaluated Ross concluded that her transgender status was not a factor in her crime. However she was found to be bi-polar with a borderline personality disorder and likely to re-offend.
