Indictment of Stephanie McMahon for Possession of a Controlled Drug

Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announces the indictment of Stephanie McMahon, 39, of Derry, on two Class B Felony counts of Acts Prohibited relating to her possession of the controlled drug Fentanyl.

The State alleges that on two occasions while working as a resident care assistant at an elderly long-term care facility in Salem, McMahon removed a total of three Fentanyl patches prescribed to a resident from that resident's medication storage box. McMahon was not authorized to administer or otherwise handle resident medication.

Each indictment carries a maximum possible penalty of 3½-7 years in the New Hampshire State Prison, and/or a $25,000.00 fine.

The charges and allegations in the indictment are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
