A Maryland federal judge sentenced a 44-year-old man to 14 years in jail for administering hundreds of silicone butt injections, with one ultimately resulting in death, according to The Washington Post.

For years, Vinnie Lysander Taylor traveled the eastern shore and parts of the Midwest, injecting women’s derrieres with silicone and playing into a desire for a svelte figure and fuller bottom.

The Post reports Taylor used an industrial grade silicon – made for bottling and canning – instead of medical-grade silicone. He kept the silicone in unmarked plastic bottles and after the injections, used super glue plastic wrap and cotton balls to prevent leakage. The Post reports Taylor set up a clothing store called “Shuga K’s” as a front, and used the store’s name to order over 180 canisters of liquid silicone.

An unnamed Maryland woman died shortly after receiving the injections and on Friday, prosecutors made sure that Taylor was held accountable for her death. According to court records, the woman suffered shortness of breath directly after receiving the injections and later died at a hospital in March 2014.

A medical examiner declared the woman’s death was caused by “acute and chronic respiratory failure due to a foreign substance,” The Post reports. After the woman’s death, Taylor told clients that he was not at fault and that she was already ill when he met her.

Taylor doesn’t hold a medical license to administer the injections and prosecutors believe he gave at least 3,000 sessions over the course of six years. According to WMAR, Taylor injected the women in hotel rooms, charging anywhere from $800 and $1,000 for the initial injections, and between $350 and $800 for subsequent injections. Authorities believe Taylor made $1.59 million from the fraudulent injections.

He was arrested in January and pled guilty, confessing that his actions resulted in the victim’s death. According to WMAR, as part of his plea agreement, the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office dismissed first-degree murder charges. After his release, Taylor will serve three years of supervised release.

  1. Extensions are a supplement to their natural hair. Black women cover and focking kill off their natural hair by lacing other peoples hair over theirs. Hair Hatted Hooligans. And in the process making whites, Asians, and Indians RICH off of their self hatred.
    Look around you Peeps, at least 3 in 5 black women are wearing that gacky weave, and think their shyt look fine. Ain’t NOBODY putting black people hair over theirs, unless it’s Halloween. Deny it all you want, all you need is look around.
    “We Need Our Weave”

  2. Between butt injections and lust for weave, is there any other group besides black women that hate themselves so much? To stich white woman’s hair to their scalp and take risky illegal injections….all to cover up their hated natural looks.

      Between lip fillers, hair extensions, Botox, cheek implants, chin implants, butt implants, tanning, is there any other group besides white women that hate themselves so much?
