SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A 23-year veteran of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department has pleaded no contest to drug charges.
Deputy Kelly Curran Smith, 43, pleaded no contest to felony charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and identity theft.
According to court documents, Smith befriended a 90-year-old Rancho Cordova man and used his name to obtain a generic form of Vicodin several times at a Gold River pharmacy. The man’s family members got suspicious and tipped off the sheriff’s department.
Smith reportedly confessed to investigators but said the drugs were for her father, who has cancer.
Under the plea agreement, Smith will serve 120 days in jail, be placed on probation and ordered to participate in a drug diversion program.
Formal sentencing will take place on Aug. 6.
Smith remains on paid leave.
