A Miami Gardens transgender woman will serve a year in prison for illegally practicing medicine, the Miami Herald reports.  Oneal Ron Morris reportedly performed illegal cosmetic surgeries by injecting Fix-a-Flat and Super Glue into women’s buttocks, which prosecutors say disfigured and sickened them.  Morris faces more charges in Broward County, including one count of manslaughter following the death of one person.
