Prescription Fraud

Prescription fraud can occur in many different ways, and is defined as the illegal acquisition of prescription drugs for personal use or profit.  Prescription fraud commonly occurs when a person steals prescription pads, calls in their own prescriptions, or alters already existing prescriptions in an attempt to get drugs.  People don’t always obtain the drugs for themselves; oftentimes they obtain the drugs to illegally sell on the streets.  The most common drugs found in prescription fraud cases include: OxyContin, Vicodin, Demerol, Xanax, Valium, Ritalin, and Adderall.   As with all drug related crimes, if you are convicted you will be facing harsh penalties and fines.  Immediately consulting with an experienced Michigan drug attorney is imperative to a successful defense.

 Prescription Fraud Penalties

If you obtain possession of a controlled substance (drugs) by a fraudulent prescription, you will be charged with a 4-year felony, and/or receive fines up to $30,000.00.  If this is your first offense, it may be possible that your charge can be taken under advisement and then dismissed.  If Attorney Barton Morris convinces the drug to take your drug case under advisement, you will avoid having a felony drug charge on your record!
