WARREN – A former Warren County nurse was sentenced in Warren County Court Friday morning to serve a minimum of five-and-a-half years in prison.
According to court documents obtained by WNYNewsNow, Kellie A. Gentz, 31, of Pittsfield, Pa., will serve a maximum of 11 1/3 years in prison. Gentz was also sentenced to serve two years of probation.
Gentz stole prescribed medication from numerous residents at a Warren nursing home, according to an investigation by the PA Attorney General’s office.
The following is a break down of the sentence of each charge that Gentz previously plead guilty to (the sentences will run consecutively):
- 48-84 months for acquiring or obtaining possession of a controlled substance.
- 4-12 months for possession of controlled substance she wasn’t licensed to possess.
- 6-24 months for neglect of care for a dependent person.
- 4-8 months for simple assault.
- 4-8 months for recklessly endangering another person.
- Maximum of two years of probation for theft by unlawfully taking a movable prop.
Gentz was originally charged in September with acquiring controlled substances, five counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, neglect of care of a dependent person, simple assault, theft by unlawfully taking a movable prop and recklessly endangering another person. The charges derived from an investigation by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.
Four counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, however, were previously withdrawn.
