A McKees Rocks woman admitted Tuesday that she conspired to resell prescription narcotics between 2010 and 2012 with a Peters physician supplying some of the prescriptions.
Carol Combs, 54, pleaded guilty to one count of drug trafficking. She resold oxycodone and oxymorphone that she or her runners obtained through prescriptions, some of which were written by Dr. Oliver Herndon, prosecutors say. Herndon, 41, is serving a sentence of 11 years and three months for prescribing more than 14,000 pills to people who didn't need them.
U.S. District Judge David Cercone scheduled Combs' sentencing for May 28.
