Defending Against Prescription Fraud Charges

Chicago Criminal Attorney

There are many medications that are addictive; many suffer the long term effects of addiction to prescription drugs, often started by an actual physical problem and a valid prescription. When it is no longer possible to get a prescription for the substance, some have turned to prescription fraud, forgery of prescriptions and other activities to acquire the drug. This can include using a prescription pad that was taken from a doctor's office, altering the size or date of a prescription or other fraudulent action that could lead to serious criminal charges.

Physicians or pharmacists can face drug charges if it is believed that they are writing excessive or false prescriptions or providing controlled substances to others illegally. There are some cases in which an individual is accused of "doctor shopping", or seeking out multiple prescriptions for a condition. In any of these cases, it is imperative that you immediately contact The Toney Law Firm, LLC to take action in defending your case.

What Are the Penalties for Prescription Fraud?

The penalty in a conviction can be up to five years in state prison. The repercussion of a conviction can last much longer than a prison term, as the future will include facing life as a convicted felon. This affects professional licenses, ability to get a job and many other ongoing and difficult restrictions. Those in the medical or pharmacy business will no longer be allowed to hold a license to practice their art.

It is vital that action is taken at once to defend the case. This could include matters of violations of rights with regard to search and seizure, other evidence that would indicate that another person had committed the crime, or in some cases, seeking alternative sentencing when drug addiction has led to the action of prescription fraud. Those in a professional field must have the case addressed by a skilled and proven defense lawyer. Attorney Sarah Toney was recognized as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers for 2010-2014 and has been selected for the Illinois Super Lawyers list in 2016 & 2015 based upon peer review, ethical standards and case results.

Don't take chances with your future. This is not the time to have a less qualified attorney representing you. It is well established that a favorable case outcome is often the result of the quality and ability of the attorney defending the case. The criminal defense lawyer from the firm is an accomplished attorney with outstanding courtroom talent that will aggressively defend the case in court.
