    A South Floridian who had been accused of injecting people's buttocks with toxic substances agreed to a plea deal Friday morning.

    Corey Eubank pleaded no contest to two counts of culpable negligence.

    A judge found him guilty and sentenced him to one year probation, according to attorneys.

    "[People] simply think I get money from doing the butt shots," Eubank said. "And that's totally not true. I'm nobody's assistant."

    Judge Rejects Plea Deal in Bad Butt Injections Case

    [MI] Judge Rejects Plea Deal in Bad Butt Injections Case; Trial Set for August
    A judge on Tuesday did not accept a plea deal agreed upon by prosecutors and defense attorneys for two South Floridians accused of injecting people's buttocks with Fix-a-Flat and other substances in an alleged black market business. Jim Lewis, the attorney for defendant Corey Eubank, spoke about the case.

    Eubank was originally charged with two counts of unauthorized practice of medicine resulting in bodily injury and faced 30 years in prison, Eubank's lawyer Jim Lewis said.

    "The judge accepted the deal when it was made plain to her that all Corey did was introduce the people who received the procedures to those doing the procedures and allowed his home to be used for the procedure," Lewis said. "He wasn't present for the procedure and received no money for it."

    Eubank was arrested in 2011 along with Oneal Morris and charged with practicing medicine without a license after victims said Morris had injected their legs and buttocks with a mixture that included Fix-a-Flat, cement and superglue.

    In late July 2012, Morris, a transgender woman, was also arrested on two charges including manslaughter in the death of Shatarka Nuby, 32.

    A judge rejected a deal made last month that included a 180-day prison stay for Morris with five years probation, saying the deal was not appropriate for the charges. Morris would have also had to pay a fine under the old deal.

    Eubank said he didn't feel good about the outcome but took the plea to get on with his life.

    "I have a son to raise," Eubank said. "The media has made this a circus."

    The victims in the case were contacted and approved of the new plea deal.
