As part of her plea deal, prosecutors agreed to drop additional charges related to illegal breast and buttock injections she allegedly administered while awaiting trial.
The injection shot directly into Street’s bloodstream, shutting down his organs, and he died as a result the following day, authorities said.
A medical examiner later determined Street died from a silicone embolism, and his death was ruled a homicide, authorities said.
Answering questions from her attorney, Olubukola Adetula, Rivera on Tuesday acknowledged she was not trained as a medical doctor and she was neither trained nor licensed to administer the silicone injection.
“You injected the silicone into his penis?” an Essex County prosecutor reportedly asked Rivera in court on Tuesday.
“Yes,” she replied.
In exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors recommended a five-year prison sentence for Rivera, who, as a native of Jamaica, also faces possible deportation. Her sentencing is scheduled for October 19.
