MASON CITY, Iowa  — A Minnesota woman accused of counterfeiting prescriptions in northern Iowa has been given five years of probation.

Online court records say 27-year-old Jenna Fuhrmann, of Glencoe, Minnesota, was sentenced last week in Mason City. She was given a deferred judgment, which means that if she successfully completes her probation, the conviction will be wiped from her record. A $1,000 civil penalty was suspended.

The records say Fuhrmann pleaded guilty to one count of prohibited acts. Prosecutors dropped two more counts in exchange for Fuhrmann’s plea.

Court documents say Fuhrmann illegally filled 22 counterfeit prescriptions for the stimulant drug Adderall in Mason City from August 2014 through the past April. The documents say the prescriptions used the name of a Minnesota doctor.
