If you are charged with prescription drug fraud or illegally possessing prescription drugs in Texas, you face serious consequences. You may be charged with a felony punishable by up to 20 years in a state prison and fines up to $10,000. In addition to this, a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record which can adversely affect your future, prohibiting job and career opportunities and enhancement, professional licenses, educational opportunities, and even housing opportunities.

Types of Prescription Drug Offenses

Illegal possession of prescription drugs or prescription drug fraud may be conducted in many ways, from altering prescriptions, forging prescriptions, impersonating medical professionals to gain unauthorized prescriptions, to prescribing a controlled substance for no medical reason, through illegal internet sales and stolen prescription drugs, to "doctor shopping," whereby prescription drugs are obtained through numerous, independent sources without their knowledge of one another.

Common prescription drugs that are illegally obtained include Vicodin, Xanax, codeine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone. Many of these drugs are governed by the Texas Controlled Substances Act, which determine the penalties you will face if convicted of a crime involving them.
