I belive that forging a prescription is a Class D felony. Specifically, Sec. 21a-266 of the Connecticut Code states:
A Class D felony is punishable by 1-5 yrs. in prison and a $5,000 fine.
It is VERY important that you get a public defender and meet with him/her to discuss the specific facts of your case. Because you have a clean record, your attorney may be able to try to work out a plea agreement to a lesser charge.
I wish you the best of luck.
