Sacramento Woman Gets 18 Months in Prison for Conspiracy to Traffic in Counterfeit Viagra and Cialis via Craigslist

SACRAMENTO, CA—Susan Yvonne Eversoll, 46, of Sacramento, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Court Judge Troy L. Nunley to 18 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release and a $5,000 fine, for conspiring to traffic in counterfeit goods, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rodriguez is prosecuting the case.

According to court documents, law enforcement received information about “Viagra” and “Cialis” being offered for sale through the Internet on Craigslist. Law enforcement later conducted controlled drug purchases of counterfeit Viagra from co-defendant Rickey Lee Campbell, 60, of Sacramento, who used the alias “Diamond Jim.” Eversoll and Campbell’s residences were searched and more than 6,000 counterfeit tablets resembling Viagra and Cialis in shape, size, and color were found. Authorities also recovered computers and electronic devices the conspirators used to sell the counterfeit goods.

Campbell has pleaded guilty to the conspiracy and is scheduled to be sentenced on May 8, 2014. He faces up to 10 years in prison for his leadership role in the conspiracy. His sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
