Prescription Drug Fraud charges (Drug Diversion)
If you have been arrested or charged for prescription drug fraud or illegal possession of prescription drugs, then it is very important for you to have an experienced defense attorney. Obtaining or possessing a prescription drug (prescription drug form) through deception, forgery or theft can lead to possible misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. Many people may think that because it is a prescription drug, and not an illegal drug/ narcotic, that it is not a serious offense and that it does not carry any penalties. Prescription drug fraud charges should in fact be treated very seriously, because they can carry heavy penalties depending on the type and amount of the drug in question.
Representation and Defense
At the Law Offices of Bridget Eyler, we understand the high stakes of having a prescription drug fraud crime on your record. We have extensive experience with prescription drug fraud charges. We understand how drug cases can affect your life, and how important it is to protect your Constitutional rights when being accused of any crime. Whether you are a licensed/certified medical professional or not, we do not believe that your livelihood and future should be harmed or lost, because of a single mistake in judgment.
I have extensive experience and knowledge in prescription fraud cases from my years of experience as a defense attorney and as both a state and federal prosecutor where I have handled many prescription fraud and drug diversion cases. I also gained an immense amount of experience about prescription fraud from my employment as a corporate compliance manager for the Dallas County Hospital District (Parkland Hospital). From those years of representing the government as a state and federal health care fraud prosecutor and as a corporate compliance manager, I have obtained the knowledge and experience necessary to effectively represent anyone or any business who is under investigation or who has been indicted for prescription fraud or any kind of drug diversion case.
Prescription Drug Fraud Defense
Many times in prescription drug fraud cases it is doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physician’s assistants, pharmacy techs, and other medical personnel who have been charged with prescription drug fraud. That is probably because they are individuals who have the greatest access to prescription drug forms and the actual drugs/medication itself. For these individuals, it is not just their reputation and freedom at stake, but it can also have a serious impact on their occupations and livelihood. If a licensed or certified professional is convicted of prescription drug fraud, it could possibly mean a reprimand, suspension, or revocation of their professional license or certification. If you have been arrested for any crime involving prescription drugs, be sure that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer who will fight to protect your rights and your job.
