In addition to the 30-day jail sentence, Burnworth also ordered three years of community control and a six-month license suspension, which prompted Burnett to ask if he could get driving privileges.

"When I get out, can I get my license so I can drive to doctor's appointments?" he asked. ------------------------------- Are you kidding me????

If he wasn't selling the "extra" prescriptions he must have been taking them...taking more drugs than prescribed by your doctor makes you an addict...they'll soon find out once he's incarcerated and only give him his prescribed amount ;)

No doubt sharing his pain meds with his family. Look up Victoria and Donald Jr. on the Municipal Court site. Whole family is dysfunctional, alcoholic and drug addicted. Sad

Think he wants the drivers license back when he gets out to continue doctor shopping for more pills / why does this same story happen over and over in the MOV? No one is ever sorry til they get caught and then they must have house arrest as they have such health problems . Of course those same people never have a problem coping with their medical condition and abusing drugs while not locked up. I am sure next week a variation of this same story will be printed again /same s h t different day.
