Sentence May Be Hard On Viagra Counterfeiter
A Puerto Rican man faces up to 10 years in federal prison after a jury found him guilty of selling thousands of counterfeit erectile dysfunction drugs.
Luis Garcia Torres, 41, of Patillas, Puerto Rico, was convicted on Friday of 12 counts of trafficking in counterfeit products, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Prosecutors presented evidence during the 4-day trial that Garcia used the Internet to buy Viagra and Cialis pills for 45 cents each, and sold them for $2.
During this time the retail price for Viagra and Cialis was $15 to $20 a pop.
