TAMPA, Fla. - A Tampa man has been sentenced to 13 years and eight months in prison for tricking his pregnant ex-girlfriend into taking a pill he believed would cause her to have a miscarriage.
Prosecutors said Welden forged a signature last year on a prescription for a pill used to induce labor. He relabeled a pill bottle as an antibiotic and told his then-girlfriend to take the pills. She was six or seven weeks pregnant when she miscarried.
Welden admitted in a plea agreement that he forged the signature of his father, who is a Tampa-area obstetrician.
