Prescription Drug Fraud
Prescription fraud can involve a number of different means for obtaining an illegal prescription, including:
- Multiple prescriptions for the same drug from different doctors (“doctor shopping”)
- Printing multiple copies of a single prescription and having them fulfilled from different pharmacies (“pharmacy shopping”)
- Stealing prescription pads
- Forging doctor signatures
Illegal Sale Of Prescription Drugs
A common prescription drug crime involves someone who has obtained a prescription drug legally selling it to someone else in violation of the law. If you have been charged with illegal sale of prescription drugs, we can help you find the best outcome possible.
Your Criminal Defense Options
Prescription drug charges are different from other drug crime charges in that the people accused are often facing the criminal justice system for the first time. In many cases, prescription drug charges involve people who started taking certain drugs legally, for perfectly harmless reasons, only to acquire an addiction to the drugs.
With specialized circumstances such as these, we might be able to receive reduced charges, an alternative sentence or other ways to minimize the long-term impact of these charges on your life. We will provide you with sound legal counsel and aggressively pursue the best outcome in your case.
