Posted on Thursday, September 16th, 2010    

A nurse has been sentenced to 10 days in jail, 18 months probation and 240 community service hours after being found guilty of writing false prescriptions.

The 24-year-old woman, who had a painkiller addiction, plead guilty to seven drug-related charges including two felony charges. The woman told the judge that she has been active in her recovery process and has been in drug treatment since January.

The charges were from incidents occurring from December 2007 to October 2009 and involved the drugs hydrocodone and oxycodone.
