Pharmacist Gets a Curfew for Taking Narcotics from Employer
LETHBRIDGE: 50-year old Marvin Leonard Johnson received a Conditional Sentence Order Friday afternoon, a sentence that carries six months of living under a curfew (10-PM to 6-AM) followed by a year of probation.
The Raymond man pleaded guilty to fraud under $5,000, admitting that while working as a pharmacist for a local business between December of 2012 and March of this year, he took $200.12 worth of a pain killer called Hydromorph-Contin for personal use.
He would then adjust computer records to make it look like the drugs were prescribed by a doctor.
A pre-sentence report for Johnson suggested that based on his prior lack of a record and with no risk to the community, he would be a reasonable candidate to serve his sentence in the community.
Johnson is also required to take counselling for substance abuse issues along with any other programs suggested by his probation officer.
