Accused of Prescription Fraud?

Speak with a Los Angeles Drug Crime Attorney

Most people think of illegal drugs when they hear the term, “drug crime.” In reality, a drug crime can involve prescription medications too. One such crime is prescription fraud, which occurs when a person uses deceit or fraud to obtain prescription medication. These cases typically involve drugs like OxyContin, morphine, Valium, Vicodin, and Xanax.

If you are under investigation for prescription fraud, contact an attorney from Stephen G. Rodriguez & Partners today.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you can face misdemeanor or felony charges. Under California Health & Safety Code 11173 and 11153, a misdemeanor conviction could mean up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Felony convictions are punishable by a $2,000 fine and up to three years in prison.

Understanding Prescription Fraud in California

Law enforcement may arrest an individual for “doctor-shopping,” (obtaining prescriptions from multiple doctors), forging a doctor’s signature, or impersonating a physician. Law enforcement may even arrest medical professionals if they believe the doctor has prescribed the drug under a false pretense.

Prescription Fraud-Related Offenses:

  • HS 11368 – Forging or Altering a Prescription
  • HS 11350 – Possession of a Controlled substance
  • HS 11352 – Sale or Transportation of a Controlled Substance
