Prescription Drug Fraud Top Rated Attorney with 25+ Years of Defense Experience

Prescription Drug Fraud Lawyer in Athens

Professional Defense for This Serious Felony

Prescription drug fraud is taken seriously by the authorities in Georgia. As a felony offense, the punishment for drug fraud could include at least a year in prison as well as thousands of fines—not to mention a permanent criminal record that can be accessed by potential employers or educational institutions.

Prescription Drug Fraud

Whether an individual alters the quantity of pills on a legitimate prescription or steals a prescription pad and forges prescriptions, seeking to obtain prescription medication through fraudulent means is a serious crime. Pharmacies are on the lookout for prescription fraud and will contact the police if the prescription looks fake or photocopied.

The sentence for a prescription drug conviction could include one to 10 years in prison as well as expensive fines. The court may also require probation and successful completion of a drug rehabilitation program.

The effects of a felony prescription fraud conviction are long lasting. Many convicted felons are unable to gain employment in certain fields, vote, own firearms or even travel outside of the United States.
