Written by NH1 News on .
CONCORD — A woman accused of stealing Fentanyl patches from a resident at an elderly care facility was indicted Tuesday.
Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announced the indictment of Stephanie McMahon, 39, of Salem, on two Class B felony counts of acts prohibited related to her possession of Fentanyl.
MacDonald said that while McMahon was working as a resident care assistant at an elderly long-term care facility in Salem, she allegedly removed a total of three Fentanyl patches prescribed to a resident from that resident's medication storage box on two different occasions. McMahon was not authorized to administer or otherwise handle resident medication.
Each indictment carries a maximum possible penalty of three to seven years in the N.H. State Prison, and/or a $25,000 fine.
The charges and allegations in the indictment are merely accusations, and McMahon is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
