Former St. Petersburg pharmacist gets three years in prison for giving out pain pills

TAMPA — A federal judge has sentenced a pharmacist to nearly three years in prison Tuesday for improperly dispensing and distributing oxycodone.

Adam Nagy, 30, formerly of St. Petersburg, pleaded guilty last fall to filling or forging fraudulent prescriptions for oxycodone, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Tampa said Tuesday. He was charged with conspiring to act outside the scope of his professional pharmacy practice.

Nagy worked at a CVS pharmacy in St. Petersburg and admitted to filling the fraudulent prescriptions and forging others from June through October 2008.
