MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- A Manhattan woman has been placed on two years' probation for her role in a conspiracy to distribute prescription drugs at a northeast Kansas pain clinic.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 30-year-old Sarah Harding-Huffine was sentenced Monday. She pleaded guilty in February to conspiracy to unlawfully distribute prescription drugs from the Manhattan clinic of Dr. Michael Schuster.

Harding-Huffine admitted illegally writing prescriptions for Oxycodone and other controlled substances on blank forms that Schuster signed and left for his staff when he traveled outside the country. Harding-Huffine was not a licensed health care provider and did not have a federal drug registration number.

Schuster pleaded guilty earlier this year to unlawfully distributing controlled substances. He was sentenced to five years in federal prison.
