Plea Deal Gets Fake Breast Exam Doc One Year In Jail

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami.com) – A Broward man accused in a phony breast exam scheme will serve a little more than one year in jail as part of a plea deal reached with prosecutors.

Phillip Winikoff, 81, of Coconut Creek, was also sentenced to two years of community control and has to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors said he posed as a doctor and offered door-to-door breast exams at a Lauderdale Lakes apartment complex in 2006.

Investigators said two women took him up on the offer and realized something was wrong after the exams started.

Winikoff had faced upwards of 55 years in prison if he had been convicted of sexual battery and practicing medicine without a license.
