Taking Drugs and Money From Nursing Home Patients, Nurse Arrested in Booneville

BOONEVILLE, Miss.–Taking over $250 from a patient at the Booneville Assisted Living Facility and getting hydrocodone and Oxycotin that was meant for patients for herself are the charges against Charlotte Godsey, 39, of Booneville.

Godsey was a nurse’s aid at the facility.

She turned herself in to the Prentiss County Sheriff’s Dept. this week, said Atty. Gen. Jim Hood, whose office is prosecuting the case.

The official charges are exploitation of a vulnerable adult and possession of a controlled substance.

Following her arrest, Godsey was allowed to post a $20,000 property bond. Her arraignment is scheduled for November 19. If convicted of the charges against her, Godsey faces up to 15 years behind bars, said Hood.
