Mail fraud and money laundering earn the Wisconsin man 6 months.  in federal prison

“Patients who take foreign unapproved prescription drugs are at serious risk of harm, as the drugs have no guarantees of safety or efficacy and hold the potential to harm those who use them,” Special Agent in Charge Lynda M. Burdelik, FDA Office of Criminal Investigations Chicago Field Office, said. “We will continue to investigate and bring to justice those who put public health at risk.”

According to the indictment, Zipperer imported foreign-sourced prescription drugs from an internet pharmacy company in India via the U.S. Mail and Express Mail Service, and none of the drugs were approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for human consumption in the United States.  “Distributing unapproved prescription drugs is illegal and puts consumers’ health at risk,” O’Shea said. “In order to protect public health and safety, our office works closely with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who seek to profit from selling unapproved prescription drugs.”

The indictment alleged that Zipperer distributed many of the foreign-sourced prescription medications to his insurance clients in person, primarily at the business office for Zipperer Financial LLC in Wausau.  Kenneth Zipperer, 54, of Wausau, originally faced five counts of mail fraud, ten counts of wire fraud, two counts of distributing misbranded prescription drugs without a written prescription or license to administer such drugs, five counts of concealment money laundering and four counts of promotional money laundering.
