HOUSTON (AP) — A man from Pakistan has pleaded guilty in a Texas fake drugs case involving thousands of bogus erectile dysfunction pills.

Prosecutors in Houston say 45-year-old Mohammad Jamal Rashid remained in custody Saturday pending sentencing later this year.

Rashid on Friday pleaded guilty to conspiracy related to the illegal importation and attempted trafficking of counterfeit drugs, plus receiving and delivering misbranded drugs. Rashid faces a possible eight years in prison and more than $250,000 in fines .

Prosecutors have described Rashid as a legal permanent resident in Houston where more than 7,000 bogus pills from China were delivered to his home in 2012.

Investigators say the pills were in open foil blister packs without packaging or labels.
