53-year-old Murray Rojas of Grantville Pennsylvania was sentenced to 27 months in prison for each of her 14 felony convictions for misbranding the drugs. 

The sentences were ordered to run concurrent of each other. 

Rojas was also sentenced to serve two years of supervised release and to pay a $5,000 fine.
