    DR. WANG botches Castration!!!

    Amateur surgeon must stand trial

    Judge rejects plea from man who performed castration

    Probation for an Oak Park man who botched a voluntary castration isn't enough punishment, so the would-be surgeon will face trial next month, a judge ruled Tuesday.

    Oakland County Circuit Judge Fred Mester told prosecutors and the lawyer for Shuo-Shan Wang, 29, that he was uncomfortable with a plea agreement that could have resulted in probation and no jail time.

    "It does not seem to me that Mr. Wang is truly understanding of the seriousness of this violation," Mester said during what was to have been Wang's sentencing Tuesday.

    Mester noted that doctors undergo years of training for such a procedure, and patients receive substantial counseling beforehand. He compared Wang's act to Jack Kevorkian meeting with people for a few hours before deciding they're ready to die.

    With that, Wang's lawyer, Steve Reina, asked Mester to withdraw the agreement and put Wang before a jury on charges he practiced medicine without a license and illegally dispensed prescription pain medication he'd bought over the counter in Canada. The charges carry up to four years in prison upon conviction.

    Reina said afterward that Wang doesn't deserve a harsh punishment because he has no prior criminal record and performed the castration on a 48-year-old Birmingham man who requested the procedure.

    Wang pleaded guilty in December, admitting that, in a 40-minute procedure last June on his kitchen table, he removed the testicles of the Birmingham man whom police have not identified. The would-be surgeon had advertised his services on the Internet.

    Police said the castrated man began bleeding uncontrollably. Police found the man sitting in blood-soaked jeans on a curb on Northfield Street after neighbors called authorities. They later found two testicles in a jar in Wang's refrigerator.

    The man later underwent emergency surgery at Providence Hospital in Southfield and has recovered. Prosecutors said the man wanted to be castrated to remove his sex drive after he contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

    Wang is a Taiwanese national with a master's degree in engineering. He's in the United States on a long-term student visa. Prosecutors said he has admitted to performing 50 other castrations in Michigan and in his former home in Australia.

    Assistant Prosecutor Ken Frazee said outside court that he wasn't concerned by the withdrawal of the plea agreement.

    "We're confident in the charges," he said.

    Wang remains free on bond. Trial was set for March 31.
