Ohio Nurse Charged with Stealing Morphine Obtains Pre-Trial Diversion

Professional:
Registered Nurse (R.N.)

Primary Issue:
An Ohio nurse was charged with stealing a large amount of morphine from an Ohio hospital. The State of Ohio takes these allegations very seriously and often seeks jail time for such offenses.

Result:
The evidence against the nurse was very strong and it was imperative that we prove to the Court and the prosecutor that the nurse was receiving treatment and sought to be rehabilitated. The nurses entered a treatment program and we compiled evidence to show the Court and prosecutor that a sentence of jail time was inappropriate, and that proper treatment was more appropriate. The Court agreed and allowed the nurse to enter into a pretrial diversion program which required drug treatment. The charges will be dismissed at the conclusion of the nurse’s treatment.
