Transgender 'toxic tush doctor' jailed for a year after pleading guilty to injecting women with super glue and tire sealant in illegal cosmetic surgeries
UPDATED: 13:52 EST, 24 October 2013
A transgender woman known as 'The Duchess' will spend a year in prison after she pleaded guilty to injecting Fix-a-Flat, Super Glue and mineral oil into the rear ends of women during illegal cosmetic surgeries.
Oneal Ron Morris, 32, today accepted the plea deal of 366 days in prison for one count of the illegal practice of healthcare. She will surrender on January 7.
She was arrested in 2011 for practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury after a patient complained the bogus doctor pumped tire sealant into her rear.

The story drew widespread attention after pictures of Morris showed she herself had a very large and wide misshapen derriere.
Up to 30 people across the U.S. came forward with claims they were scammed by the bogus doctor after her arrest.
Day of reckoning: Morris is facing more charges in Broward County, including a manslaughter count after one victim died after an operation
Morris is facing more charges in Broward County, including a manslaughter count after one victim died after an operation, according to the Miami Herald.
Prosecutors say the botched operations left two women ill and disfigured.
The Miami-Dade plea deal spares the victims - sensitive about the notoriety of the case - from having to testify in open court, according to prosecutors.
The Miami Herald reports that prosecutors stressed today that they were never able to determine exactly what substances Morris injected into the women.
Shaquanda Brown, of North Miami, says she had to be hospitalized for over a month and continues to suffer sickness after receiving the injections.
She said she heard about Morris through friends and was quoted a price of $1,000 by Eubanks but negotiated the price down to $700 for a series of 12 injections.
Before Mother's Day 2010, she says she underwent her first procedure on a massage table at Eubanks' house in Miami Gardens.
Ms Brown recalled seeing a tube of Super Glue, a black hose and a syringe but she said Morris instructed her not to look so she continued to lay face down.
She recalled Morris squeezing Super Glue onto gauze and placing the tape on the site of each injection, but the procedure stopped before she receive all of them, because they were so painful.
According to the Herald, Ms Brown was admitted to a Tampa hospital shortly after, where she stayed for over a month to recover from a series of surgeries to treat multiple abscesses. She says she also contracted a staph infection.
- Ms Brown's story comes after another alleged victim, Rajee Narinesingh, accused Morris of making her 'into a monster' after she received several procedures from the 'doctor' in 2005.

Narinesingh, a transgendered woman, wanted fuller lips, cheeks and chin, but could not afford an operation by a licensed plastic surgeon, using medical silicone and said she had heard about the 'fake doctor' by word of mouth through the transgender community.
After being injected with a cocktail of toxins she allegedly left with lumpen shapes in her cheeks, a misshapen chin and a ballooning upper lip. She later had to pay a real surgeon to repair the botched job.
A court was told that Morris used Super Glue to patch up entry wounds in the skin.

Narinesingh said she was too afraid to go to the authorities.
She explained: 'It becomes so dire for you to want to match your outside with your inside that you’re willing to roll the dice and take chances.'
Dillon told the Herald it has taken investigators over a year to piece the case together.
Police believe some victims may be too embarrassed to come forward. In addition to Ms Brown and Ms Narinesingh, other alleged victims report paying as much as $3,000 per procedure.
Morris was initially arrested on November 18 after an alleged patient complained she had been hospitalized with pneumonia and a bacterial infection after receiving a lethal cocktail of injections from Morris in May 2010.
She was left with life-threatening injuries, needing several surgeries and round-the-clock care.
Morris was allowed out on bail then arrested again on November 23 when a second alleged victim came forward. Eubanks, of Hollywood, was arrested the same day.
