Former Doctor Pleads To Drug Charge

{West Virginia}...Dr. Angela Basham-Calloway, a former Fayette County osteopathic physician, pleaded guilty Thursday to attempting to fraudulently obtain a controlled substance. West Virginia State Police say, in December 2010, a confidential informant met with Basham-Calloway in her Oak Hill office and obtained prescriptions for a controlled substance in return for $800. These prescriptions were in the names of other individuals who were not Basham-Calloway’s patients. The informant asked Basham-Calloway if she wanted some Adderall back and she responded that she did. The court will reserve judgment on Dr. Angela Basham-Calloway's plea agreement until her October 13th sentencing. If the plea agreement is accepted, Basham-Calloway could face up to 48 months in prison.
