Riverside Prescription Fraud Attorney
Concerning Prescription Fraud
Prescription fraud is a serious crime in California. It may be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony. If misdemeanor charges have been filed, do not expect the prosecutor to be more lenient or understanding. Prosecutors are only interested in convictions, so don't try to explain anything to the arresting officer or any other law enforcement personnel. Anything you say will be taken as an admission of guilt. Writing a false prescription is just as illegal as buying illegal drugs. If you have been accused of prescription fraud or any offense related to prescription drugs a Riverside drug defense attorney may be your only chance to avoid severe penalties.
