ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former Santa Fe pharmacist has admitted to dispensing testosterone without a prescription.

The U.S. attorney’s office says David Nunez entered his guilty plea Tuesday in federal court in Albuquerque. As part of a plea agreement, he was ordered to serve three years of probation and perform 100 hours of community service.

Prosecutors say Nunez was a licensed pharmacist and the owner of a pharmacy in Santa Fe at the time he committed the crime.

He was accused of allowing another person to rent space in his pharmacy to make hormone replacement creams for distribution. Nunez allowed the use his federal drug registration number to order testosterone to make the products.

The New Mexico Board of Pharmacy suspended his pharmacist license in 2015 as the result of a separate investigation and he subsequently sold his pharmacy.
