LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin woman who has already served time for misrepresenting her situation in order to get prescription drugs has been indicted on 11 new counts of the same crime.

According to an indictment filed on May 1, Peggy Diane Willamson, 62, is accused of obtaining prescriptions for Hydrocodone from four different doctors on 11 occasions.

The indictment lists the offense dates and which doctors she used:

* Sept. 12, 2010, from Dr. Gerald Garwood.

* Oct. 18, 2010, from Dr. Alexander Orlov.

* Dec. 8, 2010, from Orlov.

* Jan. 5, 2011, from Orlov.

* Feb. 2, 2011, from Orlov.

* Feb. 28, 2011, from Orlov.

* May 13, 2011, from Orlov.

* May 17, 2011, from Orlov.

* July 8, 2011, from Orlov.

* July 26, 2011, from Dr. Joseph Dean.

* Aug. 14, 2011, from Dr. Medda Rauhut.

The indictment alleges Williamson obtained the prescriptions from the doctors without telling them that she was obtaining the same prescriptions from other doctors.

Williamson was convicted in 2008 on nine charges of the same charge. Information on her punishment was not immediately available.

Williamson also has the same charge pending in Nacogdoches County.

Williamson was booked in and out of the Angelina County Jail on Monday after posting bond.
