D’IBERVILLE, Miss.- A former pharmaceutical technician of the Rite-Aid in D’Iberville plead guilty in court on Wednesday. The Sun Herald reporting that 25-year-old Patricia Leavens admitted to conspiring to distribute over 15,000 doses of Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug and Hydrocodone, a pain killer.
The charge that she plead guilty to was a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance outside the scope of a medical practice.
Apparently she was going in and changing prescriptions to a higher dosage, and then was keeping them for herself and selling them, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney John Meynardie.
This occurred between April and July 2013.
