Woman Gets 70-Month Prison Term in AIDS Drug Scam

Federal prosecutors say a New Jersey woman has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for her role in a scheme to steal more than $7 million worth of prescription drugs for low-income AIDS and cancer patients.

The 70-month sentence imposed Monday also calls for Lateefah McKenzie Body to serve three years of supervised release once she’s freed from prison.

The 35-year-old Linden resident was found guilty last August of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and nine counts of mail fraud following a two-week trial.

Two other women charged in the case pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

Prosecutors have said the three stole from the charity by using their access to a Massachusetts company hired to administer the program.
