A second person arrested in connection with phony cosmetic surgery using potentially toxic chemicals denied involvement in any illegal procedure.
"The charges are bogus," said Corey Eubank, who had bonded out of jail in time for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. "I wasn't helping anyone do anything."
Corey Alexander Eubanks, 40, was arrested Wednesday. It is not known what role Eubanks played in the practice.
Eubank is the accused faux medical assistant and money man for his friend Oneal Ron Morris, who police say was born a man and identifies as a woman. Morris was arrested Friday after nearly a year of being sought and charged with practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury.
He was arrested a second time Wednesday after more victims came forward.
"My client is emphatic that these allegations are false and intends on proving her innocence in court," said Michael Mirer, Morris' attorney.
Authorities said Morris may be part of an underground plastic surgery ring in South Florida. Health officials said additional arrests are possible, but did not elaborate because it's an ongoing investigation.
Investigators spent nearly a year tracking Morris throughout South Florida and said she moved frequently.
State health officials are encouraging other potential victims to contact them.
The Florida Department of Health said consumers can use its website to view the license information for health care providers. Patients with complaints can file them on the website or call 877-HALT-ULA and choose Option 3.
