A former pharmacist at Bon Secours Hospital has pleaded guilty to charges that he supplied narcotic pain killers to a man who sold them on the street.
The pharmacist, Shafaah Farid Maghfriat, 45, of the 5500 block of Purdue Ave., was placed on five years' probation and fined $2,000 yesterday. He pleaded guilty to a count of drug possession with intent to distribute.
"I'm deeply sorry and it will never happen again," Maghfriat told Baltimore Circuit Judge Kenneth Lavon Johnson.
John P. O'Connor, 40, of the 1500 block of Alconbury Rd. in Baltimore County, also pleaded guilty to a drug-distribution charge. O'Connor was given a suspended three-year sentence and three years' probation.
