PRESCRIPTION FRAUD AND UNLICENSED POSSESSION

Just as with any other charge of drug possession in North Carolina, North Carolina prosecutors are aggressive in their pursuit of convictions against people charged with prescription drug fraud and unlicensed possession of prescription medications. Prescription fraud is sometimes referred to as “doctor-shopping” and is charged in cases in which the accused obtains multiple drug prescriptions from several different doctors in order to obtain medications in excess of the maximum dosage that a single treating doctor would otherwise be allowed to lawfully prescribe.  Even though the defendant in this type of case is often driven by addiction, many times acquired from legitimate medical issues, North Carolina courts are merciless in seeking convictions with maximum allowable sentences, just as in any other drug-related case.

If you are facing charges for prescription fraud or unlicensed possession, it is imperative that you contact an attorney experienced in handling this specific kind of charge.  We understand that every case is unique, and our team of drug defense attorneys will carefully listen to the facts of your case and answer all of your questions.
