A registered 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.
Because the evidence against the nurse was very strong, we at Chapman Law Group knew it was imperative that we prove to the Court and the prosecutor that the nurse was receiving treatment and sought to be rehabilitated. 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, allowing the nurse to enter into a pretrial diversion program that required drug treatment. The charges will be dismissed at the conclusion of the nurse’s treatment.
