A woman has been sentenced to serve seven years in prison on a charge of culpable negligence manslaughter in connection with a death from illicit silicone buttocks injections.
Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan sentenced Natasha 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 on a conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter charge.
She was convicted following the 2012 death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon of Atlanta.
Authorities say Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and falsely represented the injector was a nurse.
Stewart says she regrets Gordon's death and was blinded by desire for "outer beauty."
