NEW ALBANY – A New Albany nurse is facing charges after being indicted for taking pain medicines away from patients.
Deborah Hannon, 44, turned herself in to investigators of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Division on Monday at the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
Attorney General Jim Hood said a Union County grand jury indicted her on three counts of possession of a controlled substance.
The indictment alleges that in April or May, while working at a local hospital, she took Demerol.
Hannon’s bond was set at $5,000. If convicted she faces up to 15 years in jail or a fine up to $3,000, or both.
