Woman pleads guilty in Vegas in beauty products fraud case
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 56-year-old former Nevada woman has pleaded guilty to fraud and misbranded medical devices charges in a case alleging she sold unapproved weight loss and beauty products from China.
U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman Trisha Young says Kelly Luanne Schaible (SHY’-buhl) of Barrington, Illinois, could face more than 20 years in federal prison following her guilty pleas Friday in Las Vegas.
Schaible is due for sentencing Oct. 25.
Her federal public defender, Nisha Brooks-Whittington, did not immediately respond to messages.
Schaible lived in Henderson and also used the names Kelly Reed and Heather Lane.
She was indicted in March 2017 relating to a company called Basics Inc. and a website offering weight loss, hair care and wrinkle reduction products.
The government said some products included non-FDA approved prescription drugs containing Botox.
