(SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y.) – Julie DeVuono, 51, of Amityville, was sentenced in September 2023 following a guilty plea to charges including submitting false Covid-19 vaccination cards, money laundering and issuing false prescriptions for opioids.

Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney condemned DeVuono’s actions, stating that as a nurse she abused her power by engaging in criminal activity. DeVuono was ordered to surrender her nursing license and forfeit more than $1.2 million in profits from the illegal enterprise.

DeVuono’s criminal conduct involved selling fraudulent Covid-19 vaccination cards and entering false information into the New York State Immunization Information System between June 15, 2021 and January 27, 2022. Customers were charged a fee of $220-$350 for false entries. She laundered the proceeds in various accounts, including paying off the mortgage.

The subsequent investigation revealed that from February 2019 to August 2021, DeVuono submitted false prescriptions for oxycodone to local pharmacies in Suffolk County for people who were not her patients, some of whom were relatives.

DeVuono and her corporation, Kids-On-Call Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, PC, pleaded guilty to various charges, including money laundering and forgery. They agreed to forfeit criminal proceeds totaling $1,252,540, surrender her professional licenses and cease operations of her pediatric practice, Wild Child Pediatric Healthcare.
