WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — A former nurse at Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital in Howland pleaded guilty Thursday to charges that she took drugs from the hospital and patients while she was working there.

Misty Young, 34, of Warren, pleaded guilty in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to 48 charges, including deception to obtain drugs, theft of drugs and illegal processing of a drug document.

Young began working at Hillside Hospital as a registered nurse in April of 2012. She was charged just two months later with the theft.

A pre-sentence investigation is being conducted.
