DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Aug. 17 (UPI) -- A Florida man will serve eight months in federal prison for selling fake Viagra and Cialis pills on the Internet, federal prosecuors said.

Gregory Bochter, 40, of Port Orange, pleaded guilty in May to ordering the counterfeit erectile dysfunction medications from two foreign companies, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

Bochter was sentenced Thursday to the prison term followed by three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution, the report said.

One of the parcels intercepted contained 1,300 pills, each of which contained only 30 percent of the legitimate drug's active ingredient, U.S. Homeland Security investigators said.
