Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud

Under Florida Statute Section 893.13, it is a third degree felony if a person obtains or attempts to obtain a controlled substance by using some type of fraud.  Usually, this occurs if a person visits one doctor and obtains a prescription.  Then, the person visits another doctor and obtains another prescription for the same drug.  However, there are defenses.  For instance, if the defendant informed both doctors that he or she already had a prescription, then there is no fraud involved.

In Jacksonville, Florida, Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud is punishable by up to five years in jail.  In my experience with Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud Cases, many people commit this crime due to an addiction to prescription drugs.  In Jacksonville, Florida, there are many rehabilitation centers available.  Most offenders need rehab, not jail!

If you have been arrested for Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida or the surrounding counties, speak with a Jacksonville Drug Crimes Attorney.  A Jacksonville Drug Crimes Lawyer will investigate your case and represent you to the fullest.  Contact our Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers by email or by calling 904-685-1200.
