DALLAS – A Texas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for posing as a gynecologist (search) — with an office in a self-storage complex.
Authorities in Dallas launched an undercover investigation after seeing an ad in a weekly newspaper offering free medical care. A prosecutor set up the undercover sting with an investigator posing as a patient and using a hidden camera.
They say Thomas Remo wore a scrub shirt and had some medical equipment in the small kitchen of the storage facility office where he worked.
After Remo's arrest in September, authorities got calls from women who said they were victims, but did not want their identities revealed in court records. Prosecutors did not file sexual assault charges.
