BECKLEY (WVVA) - A former nurse in Raleigh County has been sentenced after taking oxycodone from her workplace, then selling it to an informant.

Crystal Gail Graham, 38, was sentenced Wednesday to three years probation and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's office.

Graham had previously pleaded guilty in November 2013 to obtaining oxycodone by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception and subterfuge.

Graham was working as a licensed practical nurse at Jackie Withrow Hospital in Beckley when she used her position to illegally obtain oxycodone that was then sold to a confidential informant working with the Raleigh County Sheriff's Department.

Graham was fired from the hospital as a result of the incident.
