(Newser) – Here's a hint: If you find yourself at the local bar and a woman offers you a free breast exam ... she's probably not really a plastic surgeon. A transgendered Boise woman is accused of posing as one and fondling at least two women at bars, the Idaho Statesman reports. Making the story even stranger, Kristina B. Ross, 37, called herself Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna—and she convinced one woman to actually disrobe for her. Several women subsequently tried to reach Dr. Aussieahshowna at the office of a real doctor, saying they'd scheduled appointments.

Ross was charged with two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license, and is being held. She was convicted of aggravated battery in 2003—as a man—but is now identifying herself as a woman. The “most concerning facts here are that [Ross] is not a doctor and that [Ross] is a male touching women’s breasts under the guise of being a female doctor," said one prosecutor at her arraignment, prompting Ross to gasp, "Oh my god!"
