Rosebud woman gets probation for stealing IHS hospital drugs
SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A woman accused of stealing prescription drugs from the Rosebud Indian Health Services Hospital has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 38-year-old Bonnie Levy will also have to pay a $200 fine and nearly $40 in restitution.
Levy was indicted last year on one count of acquiring controlled substances by fraud and one count of theft in connection with health care. The Rosebud woman pleaded guilty to the former charge in March.
Johnson's office says Levy became addicted to prescription drugs while she was working in Georgia in 2005. Authorities say she began working at the Rosebud hospital in March 2013 and used her position to obtain morphine and Benadryl for her own use.
