Copperas Cove, TX — A former Copperas Cove nurse has been sentenced to probation after she pleaded guilty on Wednesday to stealing some of her patients' prescription drugs.
Kristi Ann Bass received five years probation for the five counts of possession of prescription drugs. In exchange for her plea, Bass also has to give up her nursing licenses and certifications.
Bass was arrested in August 2012 when officers found her passed out in her car. After searching her vehicle, numerous medications were found that were intended for her patients.
