Joann Ruszkowski, 43, of Meridian pleaded guilty Wednesday to selling 25 oxycodone pills for $500, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
Her sentencing on the charge of distributing a controlled substance is set for Sept. 3 in the federal courthouse in Boise.
According to the plea agreement, Ruszkowski delivered the narcotic pills to an undercover police officer in June 2012 in exchange for payment. She had obtained the controlled substances by prescription, according to a U.S. attorney news release. This investigation was initiated by the Meridian Police Department and pursued by the Drug Enforcement Administration-led Tactical Diversion Squad, which includes officers from local, state and federal agencies.
