What Have You Been Charged With?
Prescription drug cases rarely involve charges of possession alone. This charge is typically just the starting point. The accused will be charged with possessing a prescription drug without a prescription. These cases also typically involve allegations of stealing prescription pads and forging doctors' signatures, or going from doctor to doctor and falsely obtaining multiple prescriptions, which can lead to the additional charge of prescription fraud. If the case involves allegations of stealing prescription medication, prescription theft may also be charged.
To add to the seriousness of these cases, burglary charges are often added on. Burglary is defined as entering a premises with the intent to commit a crime. Since people accused of these crimes often allegedly entered a pharmacy to commit a crime, the burglary charge is supposedly justified. We can defend against every one of the charges you face.
