August 12, 2009|By DAVE McMILLION

A forged prescription case involving a Smithsburg woman is headed to Washington County Circuit Court, a Washington County District Court official said Wednesday.

The case against Elizabeth Hurtman was expected to be heard in district court Wednesday, but was forwarded to circuit court when Hurtman requested a jury trial, the official said.

Hurtman was arrested June 1 after an anonymous caller to the Tristate Neurology Center in Hagerstown alleged Hurtman was filling out blank prescription forms taken from the office.

In one of the messages, the caller alleged Hurtman talked about selling the prescriptions to others and had bragged about making $1,000 per prescription, according to documents filed in Washington County District Court.
