A Sacramento woman was sentenced Thursday in federal court to 18 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiring to traffic in counterfeit goods.

U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley also ordered Susan Yvonne Eversoll, 46, to pay a $5,000 fine, according to a federal Department of Justice news release.

According to court documents, law enforcement officials received information that “Viagra” and “Cialis” were being offered for sale through the Internet on Craigslist. Law enforcement agents later conducted controlled drug purchases of counterfeit Viagra from Eversoll’s co-defendant, Ricky 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, officials said. Authorities also recovered computers and electronic devices used to sell the counterfeit goods.

Campbell has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and is to be sentenced May 8.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force.
