  • A northeast Ohio woman convicted of posing as a veterinarian at a clinic has been released from prison after serving about half of her 18-month sentence.
    Authorities said Brandi Tomko pretended to be an animal doctor in Akron to support a drug habit. She was convicted of animal-related offenses and drug-related crimes.
    Tomko had posed as a vet from 2009 to 2011 at an animal hospital, where she drew blood, wrote prescriptions and performed animal surgeries despite not being properly licensed.
    The Akron Beacon Journal reports a judge granted Tomko early release this week and put her on probation for two years.
    Tomko’s attorney says he’s satisfied with the outcome of the case.
