Thirty-eight-year-old Christie Prody, of Moorhead, was accused of stealing prescription pills from a Moorhead couple while she worked as an in-home nursing assistant.

Prody’s attorney, Ken Kludt, says Prody became addicted to methamphetamine and oxycodone.
Prody must also pay a $1,000 fine. She’ll be on supervised probation for up to 10 years.
