Miami Prescription Fraud Attorney

What constitutes prescription fraud?

Abuse of prescription medications has quickly become one of the biggest problems Florida faces today in the realm of criminal law. As defined by the law, prescription fraud is a charge that can be imposed on individuals who assume possession of prescribed medications such as OxyContin, Hydrocodone, Xanax, Ritalin and many other prescription drugs via illegal means, for personal use or financial gain. This is a serious drug crime in Florida, and defendants who fail to enlist the services of a skilled lawyer are often prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, up to 5 years in prison with fines up to $5,000.

Prescription fraud charges can be filed under several different situations. Individuals in search of prescription medications often "shop" several physicians for multiple prescriptions, or put themselves in a position where their prescriptions can be successfully forged. Doctors and pharmacy employees may also be charged with prescription fraud when they take action to procure medications into their own possession. While the consequences of a prescription fraud conviction are harsh, certain quantities of prescription drugs may result in even worse for possession with intent to distribute, state trafficking, federal drug trafficking and other more serious criminal charges.
