A woman accused of performing a series of illegal surgical procedures that left a South Florida man with a severely deformed penis accepted a plea deal Wednesday that will put her behind bars for nearly three and a half years.

Nery Carvajal, 49, pleaded guilty to practicing medicine without a license and was given a 40-month prison sentence. She will also serve three years of probation and will testify if needed against a co-defendant.

Carvajal was arrested in August 2015. The victim, a 55-year-old man, went to Carvajal for butt injections and facial treatments. Later, he paid Carvajal for a penile enlargement at her Hialeah warehouse but the injections didn't work and instead deformed his body.

Then, according to the arrest report, Carvajal referred the victim to Dr. Mark Schreiber. But he wasn't licensed.

Police later arrested Schreiber for unlicensed practice of health care .
