Associated Press Release

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A Pensacola man is being charged by federal authorities with selling counterfeit Viagra.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced Tuesday that 53-year-old Robert Galea was indicted earlier this year by a federal grand jury.

He is charged with trafficking in fake versions of the brand name drug and trying to deliver the misbranded versions through the mail. He had his first appearance in federal court last week.

The indictment alleges that Galea obtained the counterfeit drugs from other countries including India.

If convicted he could up to 20 years in prison. His trial is scheduled to start in September.
