What can happen to me for getting caught with a fake prescription script?

My buddy had the genius idea to write us fake prescriptions for xanax. For a while it worked great, no body said a thing. Last time we went to the pharmacy the guy behind the counter seemed to really look long and hard at the script. We still got it but now I'm nervous and want to know what could possibly happen to us if someone finds out they're fake.

    You could be arrested for a number of different felonies, including uttering a forgery, obtaining a prescription drug by fraud, possession of xanax without a valid prescription, and more. If they go back and track all the prescriptions you filed then it is possible you could get charges for each time you did it. Many times pharmacists will dispense the drugs and afterwards contact the authorities. It is not a defense to the charges that the pharmacy gave you the drugs. I have handled these types of cases many times over and have seen the police get involved well after the suspect leaves the pharmacy. Don't go back to that pharmacy. Stop using fake prescriptions. If you are arrested, ask to see a lawyer and refuse to answer any questions.

    You will be charged with the crime that the intake department of the local state attorney's office decides is best to charge you with. It can be very serious, and you should consider speaking with a local criminal defense attorney to find out more.
