On April 4, 2019, to April 8, 2019, a Fulton County Common Pleas Court jury found Kimberly A. Scaffe, age 35, of Petersburg, MI, guilty of two counts of Theft of Drugs, both felonies of the fourth degree.
A Fulton County Grand Jury had previously indicted Ms. Scaffe for the June and July 2017 offenses when she stole Percocet from nursing home residents. The jury of four men and eight women deliberated approximately two and a half hours before returning their guilty verdicts. The case was prosecuted by Fulton County
Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Paul H. Kennedy, and Ms. Scaffe was represented by Swanton attorney, Gary Smith. Ms. Scaffe’s bond was continued, and a pre-sentence Investigation and report was ordered by the Court. A sentencing date has not yet been set. Ms. Scaffe could face six to eighteen months in prison for each count.
These charges were the result of an investigation conducted by the Ohio Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
