According to acting County Prosecutor James McClain, David Sherma, 37, waived his right to a grand jury presentation and pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree charge Thursday in Mays Landing. Sherma was released on his own recognizance. His plea bargain gives him probation when he’s sentenced November 2.

The probe began in March when a Vineland pharmacist contacted his local police department over a suspicious-looking prescription that Sherma dropped off. Vineland police and the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Official Corruption Unit undertook a joint investigation.
