    OR - Scott Hanson for impersonating a doctor, Redmond, 2009

    IMO, this guy's mugshot says it all! Can we say...diabolical? He also was previously in trouble for practicing as a dentist. I know sometimes these cons are good, but I've got to wonder about people who would think it's normal for a doctor to perform surgeries at home.

    A 22-year-old Crooked River Ranch man was arrested Tuesday and charged with impersonating a doctor, giving out drugs and performing minor surgery.
    Scott E. Hanson, who has no medical training, performed minor surgery on at least three people, according to the police.
    Falsely claiming he was affiliated with Mountain View Hospital in Madras, Hanson first convinced a longtime friend that he was a doctor. That friend, according to Redmond Police Capt. Brian McNaughton, then referred others to Hanson.

    Tuesday night police searched the home and removed medical evidence. We tried to contact Hanson's mother by knocking on her door and leaving messages at her work. Police say Hanson told people he was a resident at Mt. View hospital and has been posing as a doctor for at least eight months. In court Wednesday, Hanson was charged with assault, tampering with drug records, theft, and multiple counts of sex abuse, identity theft and recklessly endangering another person. Last July, Hanson was convicted of 2 counts of burglary in Portland. His ex-girl friend, who lives in Portland, also filed a restraining order against him last year.

    Wonder how many 'patients' were women?

    Glad it wasn't major surgery, those are not the last eyes I'd want to look into right before anesthesia kicked in.

    June 2009:

    A Crooked River Ranch man who performed minor surgery and injected friends with unknown drugs was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail and five years’ probation.

    The sentence came after 22-year-old Scott Hanson pleaded guilty Wednesday to five counts each of reckless endangering and unlawful practice of medicine...

    Hanson treated the victims in a Redmond home they all shared and performed his final procedure in April, when he amputated a section of a man’s nipple. The man had been suffering from an infection caused by a botched nipple piercing...

    As part of the plea agreement, Hanson will also undergo a mental health evaluation. [Judge] Forte said that was an important part of the agreement.

    “It’s clear this is a mental health issue,” Forte said. “Someone doesn’t engage in this type of behavior without something else going on.”
