BYHALIA, Miss.–If someone you loved was in a rehab facility and in pain, you’d want them to have their medication. An LPN (licensed practical nurse) who worked at a rehab facility in Senatobia was charged with taking pain pills that belonged to patients for her own use.
Samantha Livingston, 27, of Senatobia, was charged with two counts of acquiring or obtaining possession of a controlled substance or prescription “by misrepresentation, fraud and the like,” said Atty. Gen. Jim Hood.
The pills, approximately 40 hydrocodone with acetaminophen, were signed out for two patients, said Hood’s office.
Livingston was indicted by the Marshall County grand jury. She was booked into the Marshall County jail and released on a $5,000 bond. She faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and $2,000 in fines.
