From 2011 through 2018, the University of Maryland Medical System had a deal with Pugh, spending $500,000 for 100,000 copies of the “Healthy Holly” series.
As part of the judge’s sentence, all government copies of the books have to be destroyed- so there’s no certainty on how many copies will be left.
She was sentenced early Thursday afternoon for conspiracy to fraud the U.S. government, tax evasion and wire fraud.
