Is my fiance going to jail for prescription fraud?

My fiance has worked as a secretary at a doctor's office for about a half a decade. I got a phone call at work that she was caught forging a prescription and trying to pick up the meds at a pharmacy. She told me she had trouble sleeping and instead of making a doctors appointment and going through the proper channels, she wrote herself an ambien prescription. Is she going to go to jail for this? We're supposed to get married in 4 months.

    That depends on the judge. She was very silly. She worked for a doctor and could have talked to her boss about the medical problems. She might not go to jail if it was her first crime ever.

    If and how convicted may have an impact on this. As an example, if she should plead guilty through a negotiated plea agreement it could be avoided. If an open sentencing or again through negotiating, other options to executed time may be available such as community corrections. This could result in work release or home detention as possibilities. The facts of the case and her prior criminal history if any will factor into it as well.

    If this is her first offense, I doubt that she will go to prison for this felony offense, but she should contact and retain the services of counsel to insure the best possible resolution of the matter, as nothing is guaranteed in life, especially where the courts are involved.
