LUDINGTON — A 27-year-old Warren, Michigan man was sentenced Tuesday, Oct. 20, in 51st Circuit Court to serve four months of an 11-month discretionary jail sentence for a felony of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

Donald Thomas Miller’s conviction stems from “stealing prescription medication from others,” said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola. He was impersonating another person to get their prescriptions from Rite Aide.” The victim in the case is an elderly person who was seriously ill, Spaniola added.

“I was not aware of the seriousness of the illness at the time,” Miller said.

Miller was also ordered to serve two years probation, along with driver’s license sanctions. He received credit for 64 days served in jail.
