CRIMINAL POSSESSION OF A FORGED PRESCRIPTION

If you are charged with criminal possession of a forged prescription call the Northern Kentucky Criminal Attorneys at Hoffman Walker & Smith.  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 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.

You will need a Northern Kentucky Criminal Attorney to assist you in the navigation of the criminal justice system.  At Hoffman Walker & Smith, we are experienced in handling criminal possession of forged prescription cases.  Call us today to obtain the help you are going to need.
