Whizzinator Dealers Plead Guilty

Makers of the "Whizzinator," a prosthetic penis developed to help fool drug urine tests, have been charged with conspiracy to defraud the federal government and are expected to plead guilty.

In a 19-page indictment, the president and vice-president of the company which makes the product are charged with conspiracy to defraud the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

While the company's legal representative originally said he did not believe the government could bring a case against his clients but later reversed his opinion. He admitted that if government employees, such as truck drivers and pilots, were using the products to beat drug tests, there could be serious consequences. There is a plea bargain on the table, but the details are not being revealed.

Several members of the Kennedy family have avoided legal prosecution for drug and alcohol-related crimes including manslaughter, rape, and hit-and-run. None used the Whizzinator.
