Ertha McDonald has been found guilty of fraudulently attempting to obtain controlled substance.
On Oct. 3, 2011, Ertha McDonald presented a prescription from Texas for a person who was not her and who she did not know at a drug store in the Penrose neighborhood. The prescription was for 90 pills of immediate-release, high-dose Roxicodone. McDonald first lied and said she was the caregiver, but later admitted that she had no idea who the patient on the prescription was and admitted she was being paid to fill the prescription.
On Feb. 6, a St. Louis jury found McDonald guilty of fraudulently attempting to obtain controlled substance after 15 minutes of deliberation.
Sentencing is set in the case for March 14 in front of St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jimmie M. Edwards.
Congratulations ACA Kantrovitz and team!
