A nurse who had worked for the Maine State Prison received a two-year suspended jail sentence in prison for stealing painkillers.

Wiley J. Beveridge, 59, of Portland was sentenced May 25 in Knox County Superior Court for two counts of stealing drugs. Fourteen other charges of stealing drugs from July through October 2009 at the prison in Warren were dismissed.

(Due to an error in information provided by the court, the original story was incorrect in that it did not note that the jail sentence was fully suspended.)

Eight counts of forgery in connection to obtaining Vicodin and hydrocodone were settled with an unconditional discharge.

He was also placed on probation for a year and fined $800 for the stealing drugs convictions.

Beveridge worked as a licensed practical nurse at the prison. Beveridge surrendered his state license voluntarily through a consent decree with the state in July 2010.
