From the Island Packet news item:

A former Kennewick dental hygienist accused of writing fake prescriptions for personal painkiller use has been sentenced to one year in jail.

The Tri-City Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1LdZQQA ) that Judge Alex Ekstrom told 44-year-old Nicole Allenton Wednesday she could serve nine months behind bars and spend the remaining three months on jail work release.

Allenton pleaded guilty in February to three counts of obtaining a controlled substance through fraud.
