Former Teacher Admits Drug Charges

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A former Billings teacher admitted to four felony drug charges on Tuesday.

Koby Murray told a Yellowstone County District Court Judge she fraudulently obtained prescriptions by misinforming doctors about pain from past surgeries. Her prescription drug abuse problem was first noticed by the courts in 2007.

In 2008, Murray was given a deal where she could return to teaching at Lewis and Clerk Middle School, and her charges would be dismissed if she completed drug treatment. Court documents said when she failed to comply, she was charged with receiving 36 prescriptions from 19 doctors. Murray was also charged with the felony count of tampering with evidence when she fabricated her medical records to the Yellowstone County Attorney's Office.

If convicted, she could face 30 years in prison.
