Prescription Fraud in Fort Lauderdale
Have you been accused of doctor shopping?
If you have been charged with a crime related to any type of prescription
drug, including Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Valium, Ritalin, or Adderall,
you will need the help of an attorney right away. While it may appear
to be a minor offense, the crime of selling or possessing prescription
medications that do not belong to you is considered fraud. It can be charged
as a federal offense in some cases and will always result in lifelong
consequences for a person who fails to take appropriate legal action in
a timely manner. Some of the most common prescription drug crimes are
- Prescription fraud and forgery;
- Doctor shopping;
- Unlawful possession of a prescription drug;
- Unlawful sale of a prescription drug; and
- Prescription drug manufacturing
These charges are all very serious and can cause you to face consequences
of imprisonment, fines, probation, community service, and more. No matter
what drug you were accused of possessing, selling, or
trafficking, it is very important that you retain the legal services of a
Fort Lauderdale drug crime attorney.
