Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for using Just Answer. I am a licensed attorney and look forward to helping you. I am reviewing your question and will reply back shortly.
I'm very sorry to hear about what happened.Only the state, through the prosecutor's office, can actually file charges. Television and movies make it sound like anyone can press charges, but that is not the case. The decision rests with a prosecutor. That said, if anyone could file a police report, it would have been the pharmacy where your daughter allegedly took the medication, since they are the "victim."The Board of Pharmacy is not going to file a report with the authorities, though they could take disciplinary action against your daughter (much like a doctor or lawyer who is reported for alleged wrongful acts can face sanctions).

If nothing was reported to the police there would be no way for them to know that an alleged crime was committed, so no way for them to make an arrest, correct.
