Syracuse, NY - A nurse practitioner has been charged with illegally selling prescription drugs to the daughter of fired Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
Court papers said the defendant - Lauren Havens, of Manlius - provided prescription drugs to Sara Fine, 21.
Court papers also showed prescriptions written in the names of Bernie Fine's wife, Laurie Fine; a second daughter, Sheila Fine, 24; and son-in-law, Quint Streeter, 26, without proper authorization. The Fines are among seven people listed as receiving prescriptions for Percocet (Oxycodone) and Lorcet (Hydrocodone) from Havens.
Dr. Michael J. Paciorek of ENT Facial Plastic Surgery also provided a brief written statement in which he sought criminal prosecution of Havens. He identified her as a former employee.
Paciorek said that on July 18 he met with Investigator W. J. Granato of the New York State Department of Health's Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement and Granata showed him a number of prescriptions that reportedly had been filled out by Havens for Hydrocodone and Oxycodone.
Those prescriptions were written for Sara Fine, Laurie Fine, Sheila Fine, Kristen Forte, Julie Moreland, Quint Streeter and Mark Zoli, according to Paciorek's statement. Zoli is Havens' married name.
