Concord Hospital nurse acquitted on 4 drug charges, jury hung on other counts

CONCORD (AP) — A nurse accused of diverting drugs at a New Hampshire hospital has been acquitted of four charges and jurors couldn't reach a verdict on seven others after 12 hours of deliberation.

The Concord Monitor reports jurors handed down the decision on Monday against 47-year-old Kerry Bridges.

Prosecutors say the Warren, Maine, woman stole liquid painkillers and wrote bogus medication orders from doctors. But defense attorney Jim Moir says there was no evidence that his client committed the crime.

The traveling nurse worked at Concord Hospital for five weeks last year and was fired when the allegations came to light.

Assistant County Attorney Brooke Belanger says prosecutors haven't determined whether they will pursue another trial on the seven undecided counts against Bridges.
