Experienced Fort Worth Prescription Fraud Lawyer
Prescription forgery may come about in a variety of ways including using stolen prescription pads in an attempt to acquire the drugs. Sometimes the person being charged with prescription fraud works at a medical facility or pharmacy, thus making it easier to commit prescription fraud.
There is a wide range of penalties but you could be facing up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. In some cases if you work closely with a skilled attorney, you may be able to get your charges reduced. This is especially true if the defendant has no prior criminal record and the prescription drugs were for personal use only.
The court has a tendency to be more sympathetic in these cases. In some instances the person had no prior history and became addicted to painkillers after severe injury or complicated surgeries. No matter what your situation, a drug crimes defense lawyer can advise you on your best course of action. The courts are coming down hard on prescription fraud in some cases and it is best if you hire an attorney with a lot of experience specific to drug crimes cases such as those at Alband, Lane & Balderama.
