Manchester Nurse Takes Plea Deal in Prescription Drug Scheme

A Manchester nurse accused of fraudulently obtaining painkillers from her patients has taken a plea deal.

31-year-old Katie Boll pleaded guilty last month to tampering with a consumer product resulting in injury and acquiring the painkiller oxycodone by deception.

In exchange for her pleas, federal prosecutors dropped 12 other counts.

Authorities say Boll was a nurse for the Good Neighbor Society in Manchester when she schemed to acquire hydrocodone, morphine and other painkillers from at least 14 patients in her care. Prosecutors say she used mouthwash to dilute liquid morphine, resulting in injury to a patient.
