PITTSBURGH (AP) - A woman who ran a Pennsylvania methadone clinic raided by federal agents last year has pleaded guilty to operating a pill mill.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2gZ1RDl) 62-year-old Rosalind Sugarmann pleaded guilty Monday to illegal drug distribution and health care fraud.

She’ll be sentenced in May.

Sugarmann headed the Addiction Specialists clinic in North Union Township.

She was accused along with Dr. Dominic Dileo of distributing pain pills and other drugs that weren’t for a legitimate medical purpose.

DiLeo, a cardiologist who had previously served federal prison time, pleaded guilty in July and is awaiting sentencing.
