Nurse put on probation for stealing prescription
Placeholder Image

A nurse has been placed on probation for fraudulently buying hydrocodone in her sister’s name.
The nurse, Sandra Adcock, 50, was granted a judicial diversion by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on the charge of simple possession. She was issued an 11-month, 29-day judicial diversion and must pay $750 plus costs and perform 24 hours public service work. The diversion means her criminal record will be erased at the end of her probationary period. She was also ordered to undergo a drug and alcohol assessment and must continue with her LPN nursing treatment which is a requirement of her licensing.
Adcock, who works as a nurse at a local doctor’s office, was charged for taking possession of four prescriptions of hydrocodone between May and October of last year.
“She called in to Sullivan’s Hometown Pharmacy four prescriptions listed to her sister for hydrocodone without her permission or consent,” said McMinnville police detective Tony Jenkins, noting Adcock then followed up on the calls. “These prescriptions were picked up by Sandra Adcock.”
