Prescription fraud is the crime of illegally obtaining prescription drugs.  This type of fraud can happen in a number of ways, including using computers to create fake prescriptions, using stolen doctor’s prescription pads to write fraudulent prescriptions, illegally altering legitimate prescriptions so that larger amounts of the drug will be received, and calling in prescriptions using a false callback confirmation number.  No matter your specific charges, we can help.

Prescription fraud is a felony offense, and conviction will lead to consequences such as imprisonment, probation, and fines.  If you do not have a valid prescription for a drug, you can also be charged with drug possession and drug distribution.  In addition, the offense will go on your permanent criminal record, affecting your ability to obtain employment and housing for the rest of your life.  We can help ensure that your rights are protected.

If you have been accused of prescription fraud you should quickly contact an Oregon criminal defense lawyer to represent you.  By conducting an independent evaluation and investigation in regards to your prescription fraud charges, an experienced criminal defense attorney can determine exactly how to approach your defense.  In some circumstances, key evidence may be disqualified for use in the case if it was found to be illegally obtained.  If your constitutional rights were violated in any way, such as due to an unreasonable search and seizure, we can determine how to use this to your advantage and make the law work in your favor.
