A Coconut Creek man accused of posing as a doctor to offer free breast exams to unsuspecting women will serve one year behind bars as part of a plea deal reached with prosecutors, a judge was told Wednesday. 

Phillip Winikoff, 81, was accused in April 2006 of carrying on the ruse with women at an apartment complex in the 3200 block of Northwest 40 Street in Lauderdale Lakes. Investigators said two women took Winikoff up on the offer, allowed him into their apartments and realized something was amiss only after the exams started.

Winikoff was in court Wednesday to formally enter his plea, but the scheduled hearing was postponed until Friday.

Winikoff was charged with three counts of sexual battery, two counts of practicing medicine without a license, two counts of simple battery, and one count of using the title of doctor without a license.

If tried and convicted, he could have been sentenced to more than 45 years in prison for the sexual battery charges and another 10 years for practicing medicine without a license.
