Resolving Prescription Drug Fraud And Related Crimes
Prescription drugs, including OxyContin, OxyCodone, Xanax, Vicodin and Percocet, are highly addictive. Many people become dependent after being prescribed a medication to treat pain after surgery or deal with an emotional issue. When the prescription refills run out, some turn to illegal methods to obtain these drugs, including prescription shopping, stealing prescription pads, fraudulently filling prescriptions, or stealing or selling medications.
In Minnesota, possessing medication without a prescription, or selling prescription drugs is a felony. If you are found guilty, you are facing large fines and up to 30 years in prison. As a doctor or nurse, a prescription drug fraud conviction could mean the loss of your license and your livelihood. Even after serving your sentence, a felony conviction will strip you of many civil liberties, including the right to vote and the right to possess firearms, and make it difficult to find a job and housing.
At the Thole Law Firm, your lawyer can begin building your legal defense before your trial. As a legal strategy, many clients enroll in drug treatment programs to show the prosecution and the judge that they are willing to cooperate and voluntarily take steps to change their lifestyle.
