SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - A federal court sentenced a doctor in Boise, Idaho, Monday to six months in prison for injecting 200 people with fake Botox to smooth their wrinkles, officials said.

Ivyl Wells, 66, the former operator of a Boise skincare clinic, in July confessed he sought to boost his profits by purchasing counterfeit Botox at a discount and charging his patients full price for wrinkle-fighting treatments, according to court documents.
