Former Miss Russia and hedge fund billionaire George Soros’ ex girlfriend Anna Malova was arrested in New York for forging a prescription on a stolen prescription pad for the narcotic Vicodin. Malova was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and forgery. According to the New York Daily News, lawyers for the 1998 beauty queen are asking the Manhattan judge presiding over her case for more time to prove she is a user, not a dealer. For her part, Malova is claiming that she deserves to go to rehab, not jail. The judge has granted her lawyers until August 9 to prepare a defense.
According to FINalternatives, this is the second time Malova has been arrested for forging a prescription. There is another case pending in Manhattan from November. This time, Malova filled a prescription using a pad stolen from her psychiatrist’s office to obtain 85 pills, the New York Daily News reports. According to the Associated Press, Malova’s doctor reported her prescription pad stolen shortly after Malova left there Feb. 24. Although she was a doctor in Russia, she is not licensed to practice in New York.blog comments powered by Disqus
