She also spent two days in jail after her arrest in October 2013 by Kane County Sheriff's deputies, who also charged two others in a scheme to illegally obtain prescription drugs.
Rostek was arrested at her home after authorities found blank and counterfeit prescription forms; authorities believe she was printing bogus forms on her computer, but no drugs were found.
As part of the plea agreement, which was approved by Judge Karen Simpson, prosecutors dismissed 15 other felony prescription drug charges; however, each of the charges carried the same penalty range as the felony Rostek pleaded guilty to on Friday.
If Rostek violates her probation, she could be brought back to court and sentenced to up to three years in prison.
Two others arrested with Rostek last year also appeared in Kane County court Friday. Keith Knigge, 37, of the 42600 block of North Lake Road, Antioch, is due in court againt on Aug. 15 and he faces up to five years in prison on the most serious charge.
Robert Shilling-Bagley, 39, of the 600 block of Lavoie Avenue, Elgin, is next due in court on Aug. 22. He faces up to three years in prison on the most severe charge.
