kimberly smedley arrested butt injectionsThe booty business seems to be a lucrative profession!

At least that seems to have been the case for Kimberly Smedley (pictured), a Georgia woman who pleaded guilty in March to administering silicone injections to a large female clientele over an eight year period. She was arrested by federal authorities in October of 2011 while preparing to inject clients in a Washington, D.C. hotel.

According to The Smoking Gun, Smedley reportedly earned $1.3 million from her illegal enterprise that was run out of hotel rooms across the country. Federal authorities say a forensic accounting analysis of her receipts concludes that she made a considerably larger sum. Smedley charged anywhere from $500 to $1600 per injection.

To keep her business afloat, she order large amounts of silicone. For one order, she paid as much as $5000. Real butt injection procedures run as high as $10,000 bucks. The type Smedley was administering, however, were extremely cheap in comparison–and dangerous. A 20-year-old London woman, Claudia Adusei, died in Philly after receiving a butt injection in a local hotel back in Feb. of 2011. Mayra Lissette Contreras, a 22-year-old California woman, died after a butt injection operation in 2010.

Smedley, like most who administer butt injections, is not professionally trained to carry out the procedure. The Smoking Gun has more:

Smedley injected her clients–usually in hotel rooms–with a substance intended for “metal or plastic lubrication, and as an additive for paint, furniture, and automotive polishes,” according to a sentencing memo filed by prosecutors in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, Maryland.

As a result, these women “are prone to infection as a result of the toxic substance” injected by Smedley, noted prosecutors, who added that, “Even if there is not an adverse effect right away, medical problems will almost certainly arise at some point in the future.”

The feds want Smedley sentenced to 42 months in prison to be followed by three years of probation. They also want her to pay a $250,000 fine. Smedley’s lawyer would prefer a smaller fine of $5,000 and a one-year prison sentence.
