COLUMBUS, Ohio – A former lab assistant has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of human skulls and skeletons from Ohio University’s medical college and selling them online.

A federal judge in Columbus also ordered Weston Moquin, 29, to pay back the $85,000 in profits that prosecutors say he made.

Moquin pleaded guilty in January to stealing materials used as teaching aids, such as loose human bones, skulls, skeletons, plastinated human remains and autopsy saws.

Prosecutors say he sold them on eBay to customers in California, Utah and Oregon.
