During the investigation, police talked to each of the prescribing physicians and verified the incidents.

The McCracken County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Kinsey with two counts of obtaining controlled substance by forgery/fraud/false statement were handed down. She was booked into the McCracken County Jail with a $2,000 bond.
