Jail...Huge Fine For Pill Thief

A 55 year old registered nurse from Tomah won't be dispersing pills at the Tomah Memorial Hospital any time soon. That's because Dinna Peth was busted for stealing and using drugs while working for the hospital.

Peth was arrested in March 2010, and was charged with 75 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. Yesterday, Peth was sentenced to a year in the Monroe County Jail and 10 years probation. Peth must also pay around $20 thousand in restitution.

She pleaded guilty in November 2010 to 20 counts, and the remaining 55 counts were dismissed.
