Woman who caused the death of another woman by administering counterfeit buttocks injections gets 4 years in prison

A woman from New York City has been sentenced to 4-8 years behind bars for giving fake buttock injections and causing the tragic death of Lesbia Ayala, aged 48. The culprit, Whalesca Castillo, decided to play doctor by injecting silicone into Ayala’s buttocks and thighs without a valid medical license, leading to fatal consequences.

Recently, a judge in Bronx County handed down the somewhat lenient sentence to Castillo for her role in the 2017 incident. In an agreement with prosecutors last December, Castillo pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter and second-degree a*sault charges related to the illicit buttock enhancement procedure she performed at her Bronx residence.

According to Prosecutor Darcel Clark, Castillo administered the silicone injections to Ayala for cosmetic purposes, resulting in the victim’s untimely demise. The intended buttock enhancement procedure backfired, causing severe infections and excruciating pain in Ayala’s lower body. As a result of Castillo’s actions, Ayala had to undergo extensive surgical procedures to remove damaged tissue.

Following the court session, Vanessa Ayala, the victim’s sister, expressed dissatisfaction with the seemingly light sentence, arguing that four years was insufficient given Castillo’s history of similar misconduct.

“Four years is not enough,” she said, according to a report from New York City ABC affiliate WABC. “This is not the first time she did what she did. This was her third time. The last time resulted in my sister’s death. There’s no way that four years is justice.”

In Vanessa Ayala’s mention of the “third” incident, she was alluding to Castillo’s 2011 federal conviction for distributing a tainted product. Castillo confessed to administering illegal silicone injections through her clandestine home operation, charging over $1,000 per session. Castillo spent a year behind bars and was slapped with a hefty $100,000 fine.
