A former nurse appears in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court Monday for sentencing on drug charges.

29-year-old Melissa Pease of Nashport was placed on community control for 1 year by Judge Mark Fleegle and she must also complete an alcohol and drug rehab program as well as 50 hours of public service.

Pease also voluntarily surrendered her Ohio Nursing License.

In January, Pease pleaded guilty to charges of tampering with drugs stemming from incidents that occurred between January and April of 2012.
