13 sentenced for trafficking oxycodone

MARIETTA, Ga. -- Several metro Atlanta residents have been sentenced in federal court for planning to peddle prescription drugs.

Kristen Noelle Goduto and 12 co-defendants all pleaded guilty to the charges against them.

"These defendants exhibited total disregard for how their pill peddling could destroy lives," U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement. "This prescription drug can be deadly when not taken under proper medical oversight. Such brazen forging of prescriptions should serve as a reminder that some in our society will go to any length for illicit gain."

"We will continue in our commitment to prosecute law-breakers and keep the citizens of this district safe," Yates added.

According to information presented in court, Goduto wrote fake prescriptions for oxycodone and recruited others to pass them throughout north Georgia. Yates said Goduto would change doctors' office numbers to that of her cell phone on the prescriptions so she could verify them when pharmacies called.

The scheme netted Goduto and her co-defendants more than 30,000 pills, according to Yates.
