WAUKESHA (WITI) — A Waukesha woman accused of acting as a dentist pleaded not guilty on Thursday morning, May 1st.

Noemi Aguilera will stand trial on charges of practicing dentistry without a license, and felony child abuse.

Prosecutors say Aguilera was doing dental work on her living room couch — seeing up to 10 patients a day.

One of those was a 13-year-old who suffered pain and bleeding after getting braces from Aguilera.

    How can these idiots plead not guilty? If an obviously guilty person pleads not guilty and costs the taxpayers money for trial, then the penalty should be doubled.

      It’s just the way our legal system works now. Her lawyers told her to plead not guilty. They will set a pre trial date for waayyy in the future, and in that time they will try and get a better plea deal.

      None of the lawyers want to go to trial, and they will end up pleading guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence, or maybe drop the felony charge altogether. It’s a silly game of chess they play with people’s lives.

      These people who were getting discount on-the-couch dentistry, including the 13 year old’s parents, knew what they were getting themselves into.

    the parents should be charged as well. I hope with all my being…this woman gets jail time and doesn’t just get a slap on the wrist.
