    A Massachusetts nurse faced a judge Thursday on charges she ran an opioid prescription scheme.

    Twenty-nine-year-old Marjorie Taylor of Wilmington was arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on 35 counts of uttering a false prescription for a controlled substance in connection with an alleged scheme to fraudulently obtain prescription opioid medications.

    Taylor, who was released on personal recognizance, is accused of using a stolen physician's prescription pad to fill forged prescriptions in her name and those of her relatives for thousands of painkillers, including oxycodone, hydrocodone and tramadol.

    It's unclear if Taylor has an attorney.

    Her next court date is Sept. 2.
