Woman falsely represents a licensed physician
“Nothing could be more personal than the care and treatment provided by a licensed physician. We place our trust and confidence in doctors and in turn expect them to apply their sound judgment to carry out proper medical protocols and procedures, and to provide the appropriate medical advice and services.
For anyone to falsely represent she is a licensed physician when not is at the very minimum unspeakable.
Even more troubling is the fact a lay person took a huge amount of money for her “alleged services” and injured an innocent victim who relied upon and was entitled to receive quality medical attention.
As a San Diego criminal defense attorney, at times we may not dispute criminality, but focus on the defendant’s recognition of wrongdoing. There may be a defense to the wrongdoing, but the emphasis can be on the punishment. Here, what should be taken into consideration are a host of special factors, such as remorse and the lack of a prior criminal record.
Not knowing anything more about this case than published in the news media, the best one can do is try not to be too judgmental. Once a complete life history of the defendant, an analysis of all of the facts and issues, and the elements of motivation and an individual’s mental state are known and considered, a criminal defense attorney can develop his strategy.”
