If you’re able to convince a prosecutor that you intended only to forge prescriptions for yourself – which is no small matter in a state where prescription drugs can be sold on the street for huge sums of money – then you might be charged solely with third degree theft.
If you’ve fraudulently purchased prescription drugs using the pad, there are likely other charges you’ll face too.
Penalties for the theft charge alone can total five years in state prison with hefty fines, and a felony conviction that will follow you around for years, if not the rest of your life.
Odds are high that police and prosecutors will be searching diligently for other drug-related crimes to charge you with, so it’s vital that you get the kind of experienced help that can make the difference in your case.
