Recently, according to the U.S. Attorney's office in Concord, New Hampshire, a 53-year-old man and his 50-year-old wife were found guilty of distributing misbranded prescription drugs that they obtained from India.
According to a release from the office of Scott W. Murray in April, John Hayes was sentenced to 30 months in prison. His wife, Plabpleung Hayes, was ordered to serve a year and a day in prison. They have to pay a $2,500 fine.
This is all because of a drug importation charge. The drugs in question were misbranded, according to Murray, which can be highly dangerous to the public. The drugs in question "included foreign versions of Hydrocodone, Percocet, Valium, Xanax, Adderall, Ritalin, Ativan, Ambien, Tramadol, Soma, Sildenafil, and Tadalafil."
There are various paths to prison for drug importation. This is one example.
