Dr. Mabry admitted she wrote prescriptions for oxycodone and morphine and then had a co-conspirator fill those prescriptions using the names of patients.

Mabry also told a federal grand jury she was the victim of extortion, but later admitted that was not true.

She faces up to 20 years in prison.
