Former Los Angeles surgeon Jules Mark Lusman, whose medical license was revoked for improperly prescribing drugs to celebrities, pleaded no contest Monday to two felony charges of practicing medicine without a license and grand theft of personal property. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Katherine Mader immediately sentenced Lusman to five years' probation and ordered him to complete 30 days of community service, pay restitution and refrain from practicing medicine.

Jules Mark Lusman, whose medical license was revoked last week for prescribing addictive drugs to celebrities, frequently provided narcotics on a "cash-and-carry" basis to the rich and famous, including Winona Ryder and singer-actress Courtney Love, according to a state report. Lusman, 49, may face criminal prosecution, authorities said Monday. In its report, the Medical Board of California said the Santa Monica physician's stated specialty was laser surgery.

The Medical Board of California licenses physicians and other medical professionals. It also investigates medical complaints and issues disciplinary actions. The most serious penalties include license revocation, suspension and probation. These are the physicians and surgeons of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties who were subject to serious disciplinary actions between Dec. 1, 2002, and Jan. 31, 2003, according to Medical Board documents.

Between the time the first patient complained about Dr. Jules Mark Lusman's penchant for prescribing addictive narcotics and when the cosmetic surgeon was forced to give up his California medical license, five years came and went. With a star-studded cast including Winona Ryder, a singular lack of cooperative witnesses and a dramatic finale, the case took longer than most and has drawn far more public attention.
