Email

An assistant state veterinarian for the Kentucky Horse Racing Authority who is currently on paid administrative leave pleaded guilty on Wednesday to seven felony charges of prescription-drug fraud.

The veterinarian, Camme Miles, entered the guilty plea as part of an agreement with prosecutors in Jefferson Circuit Court. The agreement stipulates that Miles will be placed in a program similar to supervised probation for five years, according to her lawyer, G. Murray Turner.

Miles, 42, was accused by prosecutors of obtaining amphetamines for her own personal use.
