Components of Prescription Drug Cases
Most drug crimes are considered to be related to illegal narcotics. However, prescription drugs are regulated by the government as well. This means that a person may face criminal charges for the possession of a prescription drug without a lawful prescription, or for the
manufacturing, sale or
trafficking of prescription drugs without the valid authority to do so.
Prescription fraud is another offense related to prescription drugs, involving using deception, forgery or misrepresentation to obtain a prescription drug.
The penalties that may be enforced for a prescription drug offense in Philadelphia will vary. Whether the crime is charged as a state or federal offense will affect the sentencing. The exact type of substance involved and the amount is also highly relevant to determining the outcome of the case. A defendant may still be at risk of facing a state prison term, heavy fines and other penalties.
