FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - South Florida prosecutors say they've reached a deal with man they say posed as a doctor and offered free door-to-door breast exams.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Broward County prosecutors told a judge about the deal Tuesday, but scheduling conflicts prevented the judge from approving the deal. No date for a new hearing was set.

Authorities say 81-year-old Phillip Winikoff offered the exams at a Lauderdale Lakes apartment complex in April 2006. Authorities say he managed to assault two women before he was arrested.

Details of the deal weren't immediately available. If tried and convicted, he could have been sentenced to more than 45 years for sexual battery and 10 years for practicing medicine without a license.

A telephone message left with Winikoff's attorney wasn't immediately returned.
