JANUARY 18--A Florida man faces upwards of 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty this week to a revolting product tampering scheme in which he returned used enemas to the CVS pharmacy where he purchased the items.

Ronald Robinson, 35, entered his guilty plea to a single felony tampering charge during an appearance Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Jacksonville. A sentencing date has not been set for Robinson, who has been jailed since last year.

As detailed by prosecutors in a January 16 court filing, Robinson

"The used enemas were then reshelved by CVS workers and later sold to other customers."

I'm done with this planet.

Sounds like CVS should adopt a no return policy on this product.

10 years federal prison for being a low level douchebag?

Seems like the Pharmacy was too lax in inspecting the returned product first and are trying to cover themselves for reselling it when they should have inspected it first.

For all the guy knew, it was going to go back to the manufacturer or be thrown out as there was evidence of tempering on the box.

Petty theft at best.

no matter how bad it sounds I gotta agree with this

the pharmacy should have really inspected the products better or yes not allow returns for a product such as this at all

Nope - product tampering is a serious felony under the Federal Anti-Tampering Act. Penalties run from 10 years for generic to life if there's a fatality.

I agree that it is against federal law, what I'm saying is that I don't 100% agree with the law, in that it is too broad. To me, it is a matter of intent. Did he actually do this to try and get on the shelves undetected in the hope that someone else would use it without noticing his fecal matter, or did he do it to save money or to gross someone out (e.g. It is OBVIOUSLY USED, as you can see Fecal matter all over the product once opened. If he was really trying to pass it off as unused to get someone to reuse it, fair enough Federal Law against tampering is a far call. If he was just being an idiot without intent for anyone to actually re-use it, then I think it is excessive.

Assuming they were re-sold, how come none of those who bought the used enema kits complained?

HIV, salmonella, and the hepatitis B and C viruses--could be transmitted via used enemas.

Let's hope the convict had none of these and no one became infected.
