The infamous Botox Bandit finally goes free. After undergoing a plea-bargain, Maria Chrysson, was finally set free after six weeks of house arrest for falsely acquiring Botox Cosmetic treatments from two Miami, FL based cosmetic surgeons. She will continue to undergo probation for the next two years. However, Maria is happy to leave her former life in the past.

In either case, are the risks of a criminal record or being physically disfigured really worth it to forgo spending a few hundred dollars?
