A prescription drug crime conviction in Florida can result in very serious penalties. That’s why you have to take it incredibly seriously and do everything you can to fight the criminal charges with an excellent criminal defense attorney. Prescription drug use has skyrocketed in recent years, and the attention to prosecuting prescription drug crimes has increased accordingly. That means the state of Florida is more focused on making sure those accused of a prescription drug crime get the harshest penalties available to hold guilty people accountable and also use convictions with harsh penalties as a deterrent.
And with a new prescription drug law that went into effect in January 2018 to crack down on prescription fraud and curb the unprecedented opioid epidemic, authorities are aggressively pursuing any potential case of prescription fraud. These penalties can include several years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Unfortunately, that is only the beginning. In many cases, you may be charged with illegal possession of a drug you have a legal prescription for.

Prescription Drug Charges You May Face That We Can Beat
While all prescription drug charges are serious, they are not all the same. Each charge requires a different focus and defensive strategy to counter successfully in court. These are serious charges and could range from a misdemeanor to a first-degree felony. The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A. has had success fighting all of these prescription drug charges:
- Doctor Shopping: Visiting multiple doctors and misleading or deceiving them based on previous prescriptions and medical issues in an effort to get more prescriptions
- Forging Prescriptions: Outright development of fake prescriptions in an effort to get prescription drugs from a pharmacist
- Altering Prescriptions: Similar to the forging above, altering scripts in an effort to increase the dosage allowed or to change the drug being prescribed
- Manufacturing Prescription Drugs: The development of prescription drugs either for personal use or for sale and distribution
- Selling Prescription Drugs: Even when prescription drugs were otherwise legally made and obtained, selling those drugs to others is a crime
- Possession of Prescription Drugs with the Intent to Sell: In Florida, an actual sale doesn’t necessarily have to happen in order for an individual to be charged. They can face charges just for the intention to sell
These laws apply to any prescription drugs, although the most common drugs are narcotics and other pain relievers. And with new state laws and increased scrutiny of opioids and other pain pills, law enforcement is cracking down on any action that may constitute prescription drug fraud.
