A Houston grand jury has declined to indict two medical spa employees for practicing medicine in violation of the law. On March 25, Michelle Bogle, LVN, and Paula Springer-Bryant, MD, of Saavy Chic Medspa in Spring, Texas, were both “no-billed,” which means that the grand jury did not feel the evidence from prosecutors provided probable cause to proceed to trial. This does not necessarily mean that the cases are over, as no jeopardy is attached to a grand jury, prosecutors may try again; however, it is unusual for prosecutors to re-present a case that has already been no-billed.
Bogle, who had been an LVN for 17 years, was arrested in November 2018 after she allegedly recommended a course of treatment, which would exceed her scope of practice, to an undercover police officer. Springer-Bryant was arrested later in the month in connection with the charges against Bogle.
