Understanding Your Forgery Charges
It is crucial that you understand the charges that have been levied against you. Our firm can help you navigate this complex time and keep you informed on the types of penalties you could be facing.
You can be accused of prescription forgery for:
- Falsely making a prescription
- Altering a prescription
- Faking a signature on a prescription
- Passing or attempting to pass a false prescription
The prosecution only has to prove that you took actions to commit forgery,not that you or another individual actually obtained the drugs intended in the prescription. Additionally, they must prove that the forged prescription was made to obtain a drug of narcotic nature. For example, if you take a forged prescription to a pharmacy and attempt to get it filled, you could be accused of forgery.
You could be convicted of a felony for prescription forgery, making it imperative that you obtain legal counsel right away. The penalties for these types of crimes include up to a year in jail, thousands of dollars in fines, and additional probation time. If you have a previous record of narcotic drug crimes, you could be facing steeper charges and penalties.
