Prescription Fraud Charges in Dallas, TX

Dallas Drug Crime Lawyer

Texas Health & Safety Code § 481.129 explicitly outlaws the dispensing or prescribing of a controlled substance when such prescription is not valid or required. This includes issuing a prescription that is forged or that bears a forged signature; using a prescription that was issued to another individual; and possessing a prescription obtained through fraud or forgery. Whether the deception was achieved orally, by telephone, or in by any other form of communication, it is a felony punishable by a prison sentence and thousands of dollars in fines.

It is also illegal to disguise or otherwise alter the labeling on a drug, or to alter the appearance of a drug with the intent to make it appear as a prescription-only drug. This is a Class A misdemeanor punishable up to a year in jail, a fine of up to $4,000, or both. If convicted of such an offense, you could suffer permanent consequences in multiple areas of your life. Your career could be over-especially if convicted of a felony-and your relationships with friends and family could be ruined.
