A Williamson woman will be sentenced in June for her role in operating a Mingo County pill mill.

Myra Sue Miller, 49, pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to misusing a Drug Enforcement Administration registration number that did not belong to her.

Miller admitted that she and other known individuals used the DEA registration number assigned to former Mingo County doctor William F. Ryckman to illegally distribute prescription drugs between February 17, 2010 and February 19, 2010.

The distributed drugs were the painkiller hydrocodone and the prescription drug alprazolam, also known as “Xanax.”

Miller also admitted to faxing several blank “doctors lists” on February 17, 2010 from Ryckman’s Williamson office to Dr. Ryckman who, at the time, was at his Pennsylvania residence.

At the time of the crimes, Miller was the office manager at Ryckman’s principal medical practice formerly located in Williamson.

Miller faces up to four years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced on June 18.
