The state attorney general’s office says 54-year-old Darlene Venezia Skaggs wrote two prescriptions for Oxycodone at her home, and then met a former patient and gave the prescriptions to him. She had been terminated from Medicor Associates at the time she wrote the prescriptions. According to court papers, she said she wrote them because the man “legitimately needed them.”
She is facing similar charges in five other cases.
Venezia-Skaggs remains free on unsecured bail.
