A Canandaigua woman pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to obtaining drugs by fraud.
Shannon Lambert, 33, pleaded guilty to obtaining controlled substances by fraud and identity theft. The charges carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Lambert’s plea was announced by the office of James Kennedy Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York.
In 2018 and earlier this year, Eldridge said Lambert accessed Cornerstone’s electronic prescription program and issued 73 fraudulent prescriptions in her name or the names of her family members. Lambert had those prescriptions filled and picked them up from local pharmacies.
