Be careful who you give advice to, especially if they die because of it. Pebbelz Da Model aka Natasha Stewart was sentenced to seven year in federal prison for helping to set up the illegal butt injections that killed Karima Gordon.
Reports the Associated Press:
Natasha Stewart, 40, was convicted of manslaughter in the 2012 death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon. Stewart, who goes by the professional name of Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 to refer Gordon to the injector and falsely claimed the person was a nurse.
Mississippi Judge Bill Gowan sentenced Stewart of suburban Memphis, Tenn., to seven years in prison and eight years of suspended time for manslaughter. He ordered her to serve five years at the same time for conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter.
Stewart says she regrets Gordon’s death and was “blinded by this substance called silicone” and her quest for “outer beauty.”
Gordon’s family wrote a letter asking the judge to be lenient. Stewart was facing up to 25 years in prison.
“My heart and deepest condolences go out to Karima Gordon and her family and friends,” Stewart said in court. “I’m so deeply sorry. All I ever wanted to do was help Karima.”
