TROY, Ohio — A former Miami County sheriff 's deputy convicted of using deception to obtain prescription painkillers was sentenced to six months in prison by a judge who said he was trying to save the man from killing himself with the drugs.

"You need to learn that you can't do this any more," Judge Robert Lindeman told Josh Adkins, 34, of Tipp City on Monday. "I am going to wean you of this one way or another."
