MARIETTA, Ga. -- Several metro Atlanta residents have been sentenced in federal court for planning to peddle prescription drugs.
Kristen Noelle Goduto and 12 co-defendants all pleaded guilty to the charges against them.
"These defendants exhibited total disregard for how their pill peddling could destroy lives," U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement. "This prescription drug can be deadly when not taken under proper medical oversight. Such brazen forging of prescriptions should serve as a reminder that some in our society will go to any length for illicit gain."
"We will continue in our commitment to prosecute law-breakers and keep the citizens of this district safe," Yates added.
