Chase City woman pleads guilty to prescription fraud

A 39-year-old Chase City woman, Angela Faye Culley, pleaded guilty last week in Halifax County Circuit Court to eight counts of prescription fraud.

Pursuant to a plea agreement with the commonwealth, the court sentenced Culley to five years in prison for each of the charges, with all suspended except three years.

The plea agreement calls for Culley to complete a 24-month Behavioral Correction Program with the stipulation that if she complied with the program as outlined, she may be released from incarceration.

The plea agreement also calls for the defendant to be placed on probation for one year, submit to random drug tests and abstain from drugs as a whole, unless obtained through a valid prescription from a physician, with probation notified.
