Cosmetic Surgeon Convicted of Fraud

A Tampa cosmetic surgeon has been found guilty of using patient information to obtain a narcotic painkiller for her own use, the Tampa Bay Times reports. 

Dr. Christina Paylan was arrested in 2011 and accused to possessing Demerol, according to the Times.  While her license was suspended, that was later lifted and she had been allowed to continue practicing medicine. She faces up to five years in prison for the two charges, the Times reports.
