BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — Prosecutors say a 48-year-old Baker woman who led a multiyear scheme to repackage and redistribute unused prescription drugs, some of them expired, has been ordered to spend three years in federal prison and pay more than $2.2 million in restitution.

The Advocate reports ( ) U.S. District Judge James Brady also said Tuesday that Mona Patrice Carter must forfeit to the federal government any property tied to the Medicare fraud scheme that spanned from 2007 to 2013.

Carter pleaded guilty last April to one count of health care fraud.
