Fake Doctor: Man Or Woman?


An Idaho judge set bond at $100,000 for a Boise woman police say posed as a doctor and deceived at least two other women into having their breasts examined by her at Boise area nightclubs/bars.

Kristina Ross, 37, remains is in Ada County Jail on two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license.

His/her gender is unclear. Idaho court records show that Ross was arrested for petty theft in the spring, and the arrest warrant was issued to a Kristoffer Jon Ross.

The Idaho Statesman web site reported that Ross has a previous criminal record as a man, but identifies herself as a woman that was booked into Ada County Jail as a female.

The court found Ross was eligible for a public defender and set a preliminary hearing on the two felony charges for December 1.

The two women told Boise officers they believed Ross was a doctor because of her medical knowledge, and they agreed to undergo what they thought were breast exams at the nightclubs/bars.

To appear legitimate, Ross gave the women the telephone number of a real licensed plastic surgeon in Boise per authorities.

If convicted, Ross could face a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 for each count.
