SALT LAKE CITY -- Two men who were part of an Internet pharmacy scheme accepted a plea deal Tuesday.

James Brinton and Noah Sifuentes pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute the diet drug phentermine and conspiracy to commit international money laundering.

Prosecutors say the men and 16 others transported phentermine into Utah from Mexico. The drug was then sold on two rogue websites.
