Former GSK (NYSE: GSK) attorney Lauren Stevens has entered a not guilty plea to charges that she obstructed justice in a federal probe of the company, Reuters reported late Wednesday.
Stevens, who lives in Durham, was indicted last month for obstructing justice and making false statements in an effort to conceal illegal promotion of the antidepressant drug Wellbutrin. She no longer works at the company.
Bloomberg noted that Stevens, 60, was arraigned at a federal court in Greenbelt, Md. She faces trial on Feb. 1.
Reuters noted that Stevens is represented by Brien O’Connor of the law firm Ropes & Gray in Boston. The news service also noted that GSK has said it is working with the government in the case.
