Former radiology technician Rachel Rapraeger pleaded guilty Tuesday to telling more than 1,200 women that their mammograms had come back negative for cancer, even though no doctor had ever looked at them. Ten of the women turned out to have cancer.
As part of her plea deal, the judge sentenced Rapraeger to six months in a probation-detention facility and fined her $12,500. She has also been banned from working in medicine or health care, according to the sentencing sheet from the court clerk. Prosecutors say she admitted she had "personal issues that caused her to be disinterested in her job."
