A former pharmacist was put on 36 months probation and ordered to seek counseling during his sentencing hearing Monday on drug-related charges.
Kenneth E. Adams, 41, Brigham City, appeared before 1st District Judge Pat Brian in Brigham City. He was sentenced for his earlier guilty pleas to charges of possession of a controlled substance, practicing medicine without a license, unlawful possession of a prescription drug and theft.Brian also sentenced Adams to serve 100 days in jail, with credit for time served, and to pay a $1,000 fine. The defendant will also be subject to random searches and drug testing by the state.
Adams was brought back to Brigham City after undergoing a 90-day mental evaluation at the Utah State Prison after entering guilty pleas to the four charges last November following plea negotiations.
The defendant had been charged with eight felonies and 12 Class A misdemeanor charges, but 16 of those counts were dismissed following his guilty pleas.
The former K mart pharmacist lost his license after police investigated a tip from one of Adams' co-workers of criminal activity.
