Oneal Morris continues to maintain that she "really is innocent or whatever." After turning herself in on new charges filed in Broward County, the alleged "Fix-a-flat" butt doctor sent a written plea of not guilty to a Broward judge this morning.
The Miami Gardens transgendered woman was originally arrested back in November on charges of practicing medicine without a license. Authorities claimed that she injected a hodgepodge mix of of cement, superglue, mineral oil, and Fix-A-Flat tire mender into the rear ends of patients who wanted more junk up in their trunk. Of course, Morris' practices weren't exactly medically sound and many of her patients ended up having to seek actual medical attention.
Since then more victims have come forward, and Broward Sheriff's Deputies arrested Morris in March after they claim she performed similar procedures on two patients in a motel room in Dania Beach in 2009.
Morris' initial arrest made international headlines. Not because illegal cosmetic injections are all that uncommon. Sadly they're not, but perhaps because it appeared that Morris had injected her own behind to gigantic proportions.
