Woman gets probation in Ohio pill mill case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A judge has sentenced a woman to two years of probation for her role in a southern Ohio pill mill operation.

Lisa Clevenger pleaded guilty in March to one count of maintaining a drug premises in connection with her work at Ohio Medical and Pain Management in Waverly.

The sentence handed down Tuesday by Cincinnati federal judge Sandra Beckwith requires the first eight months to be served on home confinement.

Clevenger was an employee at the pain clinic operated by her sister and brother-in-law, where prosecutors said she played a minor role but was aware of how the clinic operated.

A message was left with Clevenger's attorney seeking comment.
