An employee at a town of Sugar Creek assisted living facility is charged with delivering marijuana to a tenant who said it helped him with his multiple sclerosis symptoms, according to a criminal complaint filed in Walworth County Court.

Walworth County prosecutors charged Ann M. Schackmuth, 48, of Twin Lakes with the felony after one of the owners of Just Like Home, W5140 County A, suspected Schackmuth of giving a tenant marijuana, according to the complaint.

The owner and a staff member told police Schackmuth was in the tenant’s room at 9:30 a.m. Dec. 15, and when the same staff member went back around 1 p.m. the room smelled like smoked marijuana, the complaint states.

The tenant said he gave “like $2 or $3” to Schackmuth for the marijuana, whom he said did not ask for money, according to the complaint.

Schackmuth told a Walworth County sheriff’s deputy she had given the tenant marijuana several times before, the complaint states. She said other staff members were aware of and OK with it.

Upon searching her car, the deputy found 15 Vicodin pills for which Schackmuth did not have a prescription, according to the complaint. She is also charged with misdemeanor possessing an illegally obtained prescription.The maximum sentence for the delivering marijuana charge is three years and six months in prison.

Schackmuth is next set to appear in court for a preliminary hearing at 3 p.m. Monday, Jan. 8.
