"A man portrayed by his lawyers as a good Samaritan pleaded guilty on Thursday to organ trafficking in the United States in what the prosecutor said was the first conviction under a federal statute banning sales of kidneys by paid donors. The man, Levy-Izhak Rosenbaum, admitted in federal court here that he had brokered three illegal kidney transplants for people in New Jersey in exchange for payments of $120,000 or more." [editor's note: Everyone involved in this prosecution should be blacklisted from ever receiving a transplant organ - TLK] (10/27/11)
