We noticed DHEC was pretty busy on March 3rd. They rounded up at least three people in Charleston County for prescription fraud. It’s nice to know they are working on it as you prepare for the inconvenience of having to visit and pay for a doctor to give you a prescription for cold and sinus pills you could once buy right off the shelf. Be sure to thank a meth mope for that.
Florence Heyward-Davis graduated nursing school in 2007. Guess she never wants to work in that field again. She was given a personal recognizance bond on her two charges.
Lisa Smith Churchwell received the same personal recognizance bond on her two charges of obtaining prescription drugs by fraud. She claims on her Facebook page to work for an animal hospital.
Christopher Clay Olson is a local attorney. He was reprimanded by SC Supreme Court in 2013. He was also given personal recognizance bonds for his prescription fraud charges. For an attorney, he sure gets sued a lot, too.
None of these three have any prior criminal history, but we thought this would be demonstrative of just how pervasive the problem is. Violation of drug laws doesn’t just occur on street corners in the hood and pharmacy robberies are not the only way to get those prescription drugs.
