Miami woman gets 1 year after botched butt operations

A Florida woman accused of injecting toxic substances into women's buttocks as an enhancement procedure has been sentenced to a year in prison.

As part of a deal with Miami-Dade County prosecutors, 32-year-old Ron Oneal Morris pleaded guilty Thursday to illegal practice of healthcare. A judge rejected a previous plea agreement for 180 days, saying that sentence was too light.

Morris was arrested in November 2011. Prosecutors say the botched operations left two women ill and disfigured.

Police say Morris was born a man and identifies as a woman. Authorities believe she may have used some of the toxic substances -- including flat-tire sealant and glue -- on herself.

The Miami Herald reports that Morris faces additional charges in Broward County, including manslaughter. Officials say one victim died after an operation.
