(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) - Drug users pay for their expenses somehow, but whoever deemed of impersonating a veterinarian?
In Akron, Ohio, 35-year-old Brandi A. Tomko appeared before the Summit County Commons Pleas Court to ask for a reduction in her bail, after being charged with animal cruelty, identity fraud and practicing at C&D Animal Hospital devoid of a license, though her request was denied.
According to News Net 5, Tomko treated pets at C&D Animal Hospital, which includes drawing blood, writing prescriptions and even performing surgeries such as spaying and declawing cats and neutering dogs.
She initially worked in the office for approximately two years, but the owner eventually left and she took over the facility, using the cash she earned to buy heroin.
Tomko also faces eight counts of drug possession and protesters outside the courtroom argue that harsher ramifications are implemented for the animal cruelty she committed.
