Arturo Godinez, who formerly ran two assisted living facilities in Florida, and his accomplice, Joel de la Osa, both of Miami, USA, have been convicted of selling counterfeit, stolen and mis-labeled medicines through a wholesale pharmaceutical business whose illegal trading in pharmaceutical products is believed to have garnered profits worth $ 20 million. The conviction of the two men was the most recent of over a dozen convictions of those involved in the racket. The list includes the infamous Michael Carlow, who was in the limelight in 2007 when he was convicted of conspiring to sell fake, misbranded and illegally imported medicines to the tune of $ 42 million.
