A Colorado plastic surgeon whose staff administered seven times the necessary amount of anesthetic to a teenager undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, then waited five hours to get help when she stopped breathing, will spend just 15 days behind bars.
Dr. Geoffrey Kim, 54, was found guilty in June of attempted reckless manslaughter and obstructing telephone services for expressly prohibiting his staff to dial 911 for hours after Emmalyn Nguyen turned blue, went into cardiac arrest and slipped into a coma. The Arapahoe County District Court jury ultimately acquitted the doctor of the most serious charge against him – negligent homicide.
Kim was sentenced on Thursday, Nov. 16. After his 15 days in jail, per court records obtained by Fox News Digital, he will remain on probation for two years.
