Edinburg (KFXV) — We have been following the case of Nohemi Gonzalez who was on trial last week for injecting dozens of patients with fake botox. Today the 48-year-old was convicted of practicing medicine without a license.
Nohemi “Mimi” Gonzalez will be spending six months in county jail, 10 years on probation and pay $20,000 dollars for two of the three counts against her. The court also asked the defendant to pay the victim in this case $5,000 dollars for every year she’s on probation. Several women who claim to be victims of the defendant were at this hearing.They say the court’s sentence is unjust.
Another alleged victim adds Gonzalez’ sentence is sending the wrong message to others who may cause the same harm without being reasonably punished.
Gonzalez must turn herself into the county jail on November 28 to serve her six month sentence.
