Ala. pharmacist sentenced on drug charges


GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A former north Alabama pharmacist has been sentenced to 21 years in prison on drug charges after authorities say he traded prescription pills for sex.

WAFF-TV (http://bit.ly/W4Vks3 ) reports a Marshall County Court judge sentenced Timothy Bishop to three consecutive 7-year terms for trading pills for sex in 2010 out of his pharmacy in Scant City.

The television station reports Bishop denied the claims and jurors heard recorded phone calls between the pharmacist and woman who claimed she had sex with Bishop. During her testimony, the woman said Bishop mixed the pills with candy, put them in plastic bags and hid them behind a soda machine outside his building.
