Putting the Doctor Back Into Juris Doctor: Lawyer Arrested For Performing Unlicensed Surgery

Carmen Olfidia Torres-Sanchez, 47, is a lawyer with the Colombian attorney general’s office, but she appears to take the doctor in juris doctor a bit too literally. Torres-Sanchez and her husband Ruben Dario Matallana-Galvas, 55, were arrested in the latest case of unlicensed cosmetic surgery — a surgery that led to the death of Elena Caro, 42. They face charges of second-degree murder. We previously looked at the case, but I was unaware that one of the defendants is actually a lawyer with the attorney general’s office. They were indicted yesterday.

Caro died after Matallana-Galvas allegedly injected her with silicon in a buttocks enhancement procedure. His surgical theater was the backroom of a Las Vegas tile store. The couple was arrested at the airport trying to get back to Colombia.

  1. Besides of being the field of fashion, you may also prepare the costly expenses of the profession you may want to take on. The XXI century is certainly century fashion,
    where existing trends have a strong influence on society.
    Perhaps you are a model who wants to expand your portfolio with a range of startling shots that show off your
    versatility and individual flair.

  2. The toxins of power will corrupt even those who prosecute violations of the law.

    However, if we citizens do not assist those who are exposed to power, then we can expect these kinds of diseases to spread.

    Be a doctor, immunize authorities so as to stop the spread of toxins of power.

  3. Well, I suppose the use of silicon in this instance is better that the concept of fix a flat….

    Just look how happy the people are in this photo op…

  4. I am not a criminal attorney, but not sure how second degree murder will fly – seems more like involuntary manslaughter case.

  5. What an idiot! How could anyone try medical procedures without being a doctor? I realize there is money in it, but he had to be undercharging the doctors in order to get customers. I hope he enjoys the buttocks customers in prison.

  6. Sadly enough, not the first time “surgical theater” has been an appropriate double entendre. Sadder still, not the last time “surgical theater” has been an appropriate double entendre.

  7. “His surgical theater was the backroom of a Las Vegas tile store.”

    Say no more…
