A Petersburg, Mich., woman was found guilty by a Fulton County Common Pleas Court jury April 8 of stealing drugs from nursing home residents.

The panel of four men and eight women deliberated approximately 2 1/2 hours before finding Kimberly A. Scaffe, 35, guilty of two counts of theft of drugs, each a fourth-degree felony. She was previously indicted by a grand jury for stealing the drug Percocet from nursing home residents in June and July of 2017.

Schaffe’s bond was continued, and a pre-sentence investigation and report ordered by the court. Sentencing has not been scheduled. Schaffe could face six to 18 months in prison for each count.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Paul Kennedy. Schaffe was represented by Swanton attorney Gary Smith.

The charges were the result of an investigation conducted by the Ohio Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
