If you are charged with criminal possession of a forged prescription, call the Northern Kentucky Criminal Attorneys at Hoffman Walker & Knauf. In Kentucky, it is a misdemeanor to possess a prescription blank with the intent to forge a prescription. If a person other than a pharmacist, a doctor, or someone similar possesses a prescription blank, then it is presumed that the said person intends to forge a prescription.
A person is guilty of criminal possession of a forged prescription when, with knowledge, that it is forged and with intent to defraud, deceive, or injure another, he utters or possesses a forged prescription for a controlled substance. Uttering is essentially the presentation of the forged document to another. If you are charged with actual possession of forged prescription, then you are likely facing felony charges.
