Regular People Facing Serious Charges
More so than most crimes, prescription drug crimes involve people who are not generally thought of as the criminal type. In fact, many people who find themselves facing prescription drug charges are people who started taking prescription drugs in a perfectly legal, acceptable fashion.
Some of these drugs, however, prove to be seriously addictive, and regular people lose control and start doing whatever it takes to keep taking the drug. A common example involves altering prescriptions. A person goes to the doctor and obtains a legal, valid prescription, then alters the prescription after the fact, changing:
- The type of drug
- The amount of drug
- The number of refills
- The potency of the drug
Although this might seem like a pretty harmless act to some, the law takes prescription drug crimes seriously. If you have been charged with prescription altering in Florida, it is essential to work with a team of lawyers who have the experience and focus to help you get the most minimal sentence possible.
