Idaho: Fake doctor 'gave breast exams in bars'
Friday 19 November 2010
An Idaho judge has set bail at $100,000 (£62,000) for a woman who police say posed as a physician and duped at least two women into letting her examine their breasts at nightclubs in the Boise area.
Kristina Ross, 37, remains in Ada County Jail in Boise, the state capital, on two felony counts of practising medicine without a licence.
Police say Ms Ross introduced herself to victims as a plastic surgeon named Berlyn Aussieahshowna, a bogus name. The two women told officers they believed Ms Ross was a physician because of her apparent medical knowledge, and they agreed to undergo breast exams, which happened at the bars.
As part of her ruse, Ms Ross gave the women the telephone number of a real licensed plastic surgeon, authorities claim.
Staff at that medical office became alarmed at the number of calls from women attempting to confirm appointments or surgeries with a Berlyn Aussieahshowna.
The suspect's gender is unclear. Idaho court records show that Ross was arrested for petty theft in the spring and that the arrest warrant was issued to a Kristoffer Jon Ross.
The Idaho Statesman website reported that Ms Ross has a previous criminal record as a man but identifies herself as a woman and was booked into Ada County Jail as a female.
