PERRY, Ga. — An ex-radiology technician accused of filing inaccurate mammogram results at a Georgia hospital has pleaded guilty to 10 counts of reckless conduct and a charge of computer forgery.

Prosecutors have said 33-year-old Rachael Michelle Rapraeger, of Macon, entered nearly 1,300 negative mammogram results at Perry Hospital between Jan. 22, 2009 and April 1, 2010 that hadn't been reviewed by a radiologist.

Her attorney, Floyd Buford, has said Rapraeger was overwhelmed and began entering negative results when she got behind at work.

Prosecutors have said 10 of the results were actually positive.

Rapraeger was sentenced to six months in a state probation detention center.
