A Drug Offense known as Prescription Drug Fraud in Colorado

Prescription-Fraud.jpgIllegally Obtaining Controlled Substances in Douglas County

Illegally obtaining drugs from a pharmacy in Douglas County is a Drug Offense also known as Prescription Drug Fraud and Deceit. This is a crime that is not restricted to just the homeless person who is down and out. One of the many ways people become hooked on drugs is when a patient has been legitimately treated for long term pain. Drug addicts not only live on the streets of Denver, but they also live in the suburbs of Castle Rock in Douglas County, and Littleton in Jefferson County. When a doctor or housewife does not know where to turn to satisfy her dependency she may try to get creative.

Other Ways to get Charged with Prescription Fraud in Arapahoe County

It can seem very harsh to punish a desperate person so severely, but if caught in an Arapahoe County supermarket trying to obtain a controlled substance by presenting an altered prescription it will result in a level 4 drug felony. Faking an injury or medical condition to a treatment provider, or pretending to be a doctor or pharmacist is another creative way people have tried to obtain controlled substances. A doctor can also be charged with Prescription Drug Fraud and Deceit if he uses his authority to obtain controlled substances for illegitimate reasons. This was the case in 2011 when the director of Children's Hospital Emergency department was convicted. There are also ways that people can be wrongfully charged with Fraud and Deceit, and that is why we are here.

Arapahoe County Prosecutors Are Looking for Work

It seems like prosecutors in Arapahoe County or Denver County are looking for ways they can charge people with a drug offense who actually need help. Perhaps it is the incentive to make bonuses, or perhaps it is to add to her resume for future political purposes, either way we see prosecutors close their eyes to the real needs of people by adding unfounded charges. When a person is facing criminal charges prosecutors will often add unfounded charges to scare defendants into taking a an easy conviction or plea bargain.This serves several purposes. The DA gets the conviction with a potential bonus, it makes room for more cases, and they don't have to prove anything in court.
