What are the penalties for prescription fraud charges in Maine?

Prescription fraud has grown heavily throughout the United States in recent years, and people have become more and more susceptible to prescription drug addiction, in turn.

Prescription fraud is a felony offense across the nation, and the penalties are waged accordingly. If convicted of this offense, one can expect to face up to five years in prison and hefty fines.

Not only can an individual who acted unlawfully face harsh penalties, but any doctor who knowingly acted as an accomplice, or enabled this crime, can face the same consequences, as well—in addition to losing their license to practice medicine.

A Maine prescription fraud attorney can assist you in fighting these charges and avoiding the negative consequences of a conviction.

If someone is faced with a first-time offense, they might be able to reduce their charges to probation paired with the completion of a rehabilitation program.

Most states have a “zero tolerance” attitude toward any kind of drug crime, and they increase the severity of the punishment accordingly, as the frequency of this crime occurs.

Great group of people. Managed to get me a favorable outcome from a very bad situation. I would highly recommend this firm if you have legal troubles. Top notch performance!!

So thankful I chose this team to represent me. They’re the best, hands down. Nathan Hitchcock proved my innocence not once but TWICE, including a trial by jury. I have a family in law enforcement who told me “Bill Bly and his team are the best. If I would recommend anyone, it would be them.”
