Filling false prescriptions could land former St. Petersburg pharmacist in prison

TAMPA — A pharmacist faces up to 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to filling or forging fraudulent prescriptions for oxycodone, prosecutors said. Adam Nagy, 30, formerly of St. Petersburg, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring to act outside the scope of his professional pharmacy practice by dispensing and distributing oxycodone. He filled the bogus prescriptions for other people from June through October 2008 while working at a CVS Pharmacy in St. Petersburg, officials said.
