Illegal injections

    New Jersey model Anivia Cruz-Dilworth has been charged for practicing medicine without a license stemming from allegations that she injected a household sealant into the buttocks of women seeking cosmetic procedures.


    The New Brunswick resident faces three charges after illegally injecting six women with what authorities believe is a caulk-like substance and then sealing the wounds with krazyglue.

    Cruz-Dilworth faces three to five years in prison, the Star-Ledger reports, and will attend a hearing Dec. 9.
