Fraudulent Surgery Payment Nets Patient Jail Time
An Orange County, California woman’s new breasts will cost her six months in jail. Yvonne Jean Pampellonne was sentenced for using a fraudulent line of credit to obtain $12,000 in cosmetic surgery, including breast implants and liposuction.
The 30-year-old woman pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail and was placed on three years&rsquo probation. Restitution was also ordered, but the amount wasn't immediately clear.
Pampellonne used a line of credit established in another person's name to get the September 2008 procedures at the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Huntington Beach.
