Sirens & Gavels

Courthouse watch: 8.31.09

A woman who stole OxyContin from a pharmacy where she worked - and that closed after being inundated with prescription drug crime - will be on probation for the next year.

Lisa A. Roth pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance in an investigation that began while she was employed at the Altamont Pharmacy on South Perry Street.  

The pharmacy closed earlier this year after nearly 100 years in business.

The owner, Art Tyrrell, said he felt particularly burned by Roth, who said “snookered” him out of prescription pills for months. (Read a story on that here.) Roth was charged in October and fired shortly after.

The plea deal approved by Judge Maryann Moreno today credits Roth for one day served in jail and puts her on probation for 12 months. A restitution hearing is set for next month. 

She could be required to pay between $10,000 and $40,000.
