A former clerk with the IRS in Fresno, CA, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday of selling prescription pills that led to the death of a co-worker.

According a release from the Department of Justice, Margarita Aispuro-Camacho sold morphine pills and other drugs she had been prescribed to a co-worker at the IRS.

This happened on at least five occasions, during which time the 46-year-old made “a few thousand dollars” on the sales, according to court records.

In May 2020, the co-worker overdosed and died after taking morphine Aispuro-Camacho had provided, along with other prescription drugs that had been obtained from other sources.

Aispuro-Camacho is scheduled for sentencing June 20 and faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine, according to the Justice Department.
