Prescription Fraud

Prescription Fraud Criminal Defense or Appeal

Although prescription drugs have beneficial purposes, many of them are also addicting. Others provide users with a high or can dull the senses. In some cases, a prescription drug is an ingredient used to make yet another drug. When lying is involved in the procurement of the prescription drug, the crime becomes drug fraud.

Prescription fraud can be a state or federal offense, depending on the circumstances. If the fraud involves a federal program, such as Medicaid or Medicare, it becomes a federal crime. Federal crimes involve different laws, fines, penalties and sentences. Even the prosecutors are different. In general, a federal prosecutor is a bit more experienced, more qualified and better prepared than a district attorney.

When facing a federal prosecutor, it is a wise idea to have a criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience in federal courts and appeals.
