A former EMS paramedic in Monticello Kentucky has been sentenced to two years in prison for tampering with pain medication belonging to the EMS.

U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove sentenced Susie Willis, 49, for tampering with a consumer product.

In May of 2010, Willis admitted she broke the seal on at least two EMS vials containing a pain medication called fentanyl citrate. She withdrew the medicine for her own personal use, and refilled the vials with saline solution. She then resealed the vials with Crazy Glue.

Willis' plea agreement says the saline solution could have caused extreme physical pain or impairment of bodily functions if administered to a patient instead of the intended fentanyl citrate.

Willis surrendered her EMT license in December of 2010.
