A woman is found guilty of forging prescriptions in Monterey County

(BCN) – A woman found guilty Wednesday of forging a prescription for narcotics faces up to a year in the county jail, Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo announced Thursday.

Mary Grace Royster, 40, entered the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula on July 22, 2015, with complaints of back pain. She was examined, referred to a specialist and written a prescription for a low dose of Percocet, a Schedule II narcotic painkiller, prosecutors said.

Royster then went directly to a pharmacy and attempted to fill the prescription after altering it, according to prosecutors.

The pharmacist noticed the quantity and the strength of the prescription appeared to have been altered and called 911.

Royster is scheduled for sentencing on Feb. 11.
