FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - A nurse is heading to prison after pleading guilty to a scheme that stole $600,000 from Lee Memorial Health System.
Melody McClintock signed a plea deal Monday in Fort Myers. Terms of the deal include two years in prison, followed by two years of house arrest and 16 years of probation.
Officials say McClintock and her husband Ralph McClintock used money stolen from the hospital system to buy a new house, vehicles and other luxuries. Her husband, who was also charged in the case, committed suicide in 2009. McClintock's sentencing is scheduled for March 10.
