O.J. Simpson's ex-girlfriend busted stealing prescription meds from elderly Moorhead man

O.J.'s ex tried to clear out an elderly man's medicine cabinet.
It's been a long, hard fall for O.J. Simpson -- from NFL superstar to accused murderer to being sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery.

Apparently, one of his ex-girlfriends is experiencing a long, hard fall of her own. Yesterday, Christie Prody, Simpson's girlfriend of 13 years, was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of theft, and two counts of fifth-degree drug possession after she was busted stealing prescription pills from an elderly Moorhead man.

Prody, 37, worked as a nurse's aide for the elderly man. She was caught taking the pills on a camera the man had installed after a January incident where 300 Oxycodone tablets mysteriously disappeared from the home he shares with his wife.

Prody had just started working in the home at the time of the January incident and denied taking the pills. But her elderly employer and his wife weren't convinced, and decided to install a surveillance camera in hopes of determining who was responsible for the prescription med swiping if it happened again.

From The Jamestown Sun:

Prody dated Juice for 13 years following O.J.'s acquittal on murder charges.
On Friday, the couple reported to police that after returning home from church that afternoon, they again discovered that some of the man's medication was missing, this time a number of morphine and lorazepam pills.

Footage from the surveillance camera allegedly shows Prody stealing the morphine, as well as opening a bottle of lorazepam and putting a number of pills in her mouth before leaving the home, documents state.

When confronted with the video, Prody admitted to taking the medication and told investigators she did so because she is addicted to prescription pills, police allege in court records.
It's a sad story. But then again, it's not too surprising that someone who spent more than a decade dating O.J. post-Nicole would need drugs to cope. Prody, unfortunately for her, just picked the wrong elderly couple to mess with in hopes of getting her fix.

Well, it's not surprising I suppose.  Despite the fact that prescription drug addiction is one of the worst epidemics to ever hit the US, no one seems to be doing much about it, except prescribing more and more drugs to people who probably don't need them or worse - can't handle.  This isn't the case for everyone, but it is for many.  Consider this article about prescription drug abuse in the US: http://recoveryfirst.org/prescription-drug-addiction-in-the-united-states.html/    As mentioned when published last year, the most surprising thing about this is how little is being done.  In fact, quite the contrary.  

 

Hopefully this woman is provided with some serious treatment options in addition to whatever sentence they mete out.

Why is this woman working as a nurses aid to anyone.  She has been a drug addict for years.  She was charged with animal cruelty for leaving her cat in apartment to starve to death.  This worman should be in jail and certainly not be working as a nurses aid of all things.

I wonder who had the better end of the relationship when these two were going out?

Why the apostrophe in ex-girlfriends? I give up on you guys.

 I certainly agree she should NOT be working as anyone nurse.  She clearly suffers from a severe addiction and needs help. But jail? How is that going to help anyone? Yes, she should serve time for the theft, but sending people to prison purely for drug use doesn't really address the problem of addiction. People who are arrested for drug crimes need treatment, not punishment.

It's fixed now, thanks for pointing that out.

You're welcome. I respect what you're doing, but these errors do diminish credibility. One extra proofread before publishing, perhaps.
