JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - A judge orders probation and fines for two people arrested for selling misbranded drugs to people across north Mississippi.

Dean Priest also pleaded guilty to a smuggling charge.
Investigators say the two sold a drug called Sildenafil, which is similar to Viagra, at an adult store in Lowndes County.
Court records show the drugs were purchased in China, but the Priests had been selling across the United States.
The charges date to purchases and sales in 2015 and 2017.
A federal judge sentenced each to one-year probation and a $1,000 fine.
