Employer Gave Kevin Criswell A "Second Chance"

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The former University of Montana basketball player who faces federal drug charges got a "second chance" from his current employer.

Kevin Criswell is working as a physical therapist in Libby.

His supervisor, Patrick Gulick, sent ABC FOX Montana this written statement:

"We all know too well the dreadful effects that these pain killers have had on our population. Kevin Criswell resigned from Daniels County Hospital nearly 3 years ago following these allegations. He underwent counseling and drug testing and he was seen fit to hire by St. John's Hospital in Libby two years later. Kevin Criswell has been our trusted employee for a year. As a condition of his employment, he continues to be drug tested and never has tested positive. We have appreciated the confidence placed in us by the Board of Physical Therapy to supervise Kevin. Kevin and Orthopedic Rehab have taken this responsibility seriously and believe that we have fully met the Board's expectations.

Everyone deserves a second chance."

Criswell pleaded not guilty in Billings Federal Court Tuesday to two felony charges of conspiracy and acquiring hydrocodone and oxycodone by forgery, fraud or subterfuge.

The crimes are alleged to have happened in Scobey between January 2011 and August 2012.
