Charged with Prescription Fraud in Arizona!

Prescription fraud is a drug crime that includes the usage of phony or forged prescriptions and/or attempts to have legitimate prescriptions filled at numerous pharmacies. Arizona prescription fraud convictions can carry serious legal consequences, including long-term jail and prison sentences, steep fines, probation, mandatory drug treatment, community service, driver’s license suspension and a blemished permanent record.

In an Arizona prescription fraud case, the prosecution may try to prove that there was intent beyond an addition to commit the crime. Therefore, if you are charged with prescription fraud as a result of an addiction, you should contact an attorney who can challenge the prosecution’s evidence for intent. An experienced criminal attorney may be able to help you avoid the penalties of a prescription fraud conviction by getting you into a rehabilitation program.
