HONOLULU (AP) — A New York City couple was sentenced to prison on charges of illegally injecting women in Honolulu with wrinkle-reducing drugs similar to Botox.

Hawaii News Now reports that Bu Young Kim was sentenced to three months in prison, and her husband, Chan Hui Cho, was sentenced to two months after federal authorities say they imported drugs from South Korea to administer in Hawaii. The couple was arrested in March 2016, and they entered guilty pleas in February.

Authorities say the couple would fly to Hawaii where Kim would inject women in places like Honolulu hotel rooms. The couple charged up to $500 for the treatments that are only allowable by licensed practitioners.

Kim's attorney Michael Green says his client cooperated with authorities, and "she didn't set out to hurt anyone."
