A former probation officer is getting a second chance at her own time on probation.

Ruby Maddox had her initial probation revoked and will start a new three year term with a three-to-five year suspended prison sentence laying in wait.

Maddox admitted that during her initial probation term, she took more than her regular amount of prescription medication, and the Casper Re-Entry Center filed a motion to have her probation period terminated.

It turns out, she has Graves Disease and she was recently admitted to Wyoming Recovery for pain medication addiction.

Maddox was originally placed on probation, after pleading guilty to one count of possession of a controlled substance and four counts of petty larceny.

Investigators say in 2012, she was working as an agent for the Department of Corrections and was taking pills from various clients.

Graves Disease is known to affect the thyroid in women, causing it to become overactive.
