(AP) MOORHEAD, Minn. - A former girlfriend of O.J. Simpson has been sentenced to 45 days in jail after a reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors in Minnesota.

Thirty-eight-year-old Christie Prody, of Moorhead, was accused of stealing prescription pills from a Moorhead couple while she worked as an in-home nursing assistant.

KFGO-AM reports that Prody says she’s focusing on staying sober and rebuilding her relationship with God. She says she’s doing everything she can to "better" herself.

Prody’s attorney, Ken Kludt, says Prody became addicted to methamphetamine and oxycodone.

Prody must also pay a $1,000 fine. She’ll be on supervised probation for up to 10 years.

Prody had a 13-year relationship with Simpson after the NFL Hall of Famer was acquitted in the 1994 slaying of his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles.
