Two dumb ass Florida women did back in 2006 when Phillip Winikoff, then 76, showed up at their doors carrying a black doctor’s bag and stating that he was there on behalf of the local hospital offering free breast examinations. And, apparently, their breasts weren’t all that he ‘examined’ … which is what finally sent up a red flag to one of these women to call the police. When the police arrived, “Doctor” Winikoff was stupidly still in the same apartment complex seeing another “patient” …. plus he was 76 … so it was a pretty easy apprehension.
Now five years later, Winikoff struck a plea deal with the prosecutors yesterday in the hopes of avoiding a trial, which could result in 55 years in jail. His original charges included three counts of sexual battery, two counts of practicing medicine without a license, two counts of simple battery and one count of using the title of doctor without a license.
Due to various circumstances, the judge on the case had to reschedule the plea hearing for a to-be-determined date. There’s no information yet about whether the plea deal will keep Winikoff out of prison.
Says me, choking on my morning beverage … “Really???”
