Utah man negotiates plea in supplement case

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Federal prosecutors are negotiating a plea deal for a Utah man charged with selling a Viagra-like drug disguised as a natural supplement.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Federal prosecutors are negotiating a plea deal for a Utah man charged with selling a Viagra-like drug disguised as a natural supplement.

In a court order, U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball recognized the settlement talks by delaying a trial that was supposed to be held Monday. It has been rescheduled for Sept. 10.

Prosecutors say Kelly Dean Harvey collected more than $2 million in online sales of erectile dysfunction products.

The products were advertised as "100 percent natural," but tests found they contained a chemical similar to the active ingredient in Viagra.

The FDA says the 48-year-old Harvey didn't disclose that the products could be dangerous for people with heart conditions.

The West Jordan man has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy, mail and wire fraud, money laundering and drug charges.
