SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - A Shasta County woman posing as a nurse faces several charges for giving botox treatments without a license.
The Shasta County District Attorney's Office charged Susan Tancreto with eight felonies.
Prosecutors say she provided botox treatments to patients and some of those injections resulted in severe injury and significant facial deformities to the victims, who now require long term medical treatment.
Prosecutors also charged Redding doctor Larry Pyle with aiding and abetting. They say he sold Tancreto botox and she posed as a nurse working with him. Tancreto also faces drug charges.
Further investigations by the DCA-DOI and FDA also revealed that Tancreto offered, sold, furnished or gave away a variety of controlled substances including Norco, Valium and Tramadol.
The DA's office is asking anyone who received treatments from Tancreto to report it. The Shasta County Crime Victims Assistance Center says it may be able to help victims pay medical bills.
