Ive been working for a dr for the past year and over the course

I've been working for a dr for the past year and over the course of a year he would have me fill prescriptions for him. Sometimes in my own name and some in other names. I voiced my concern to him several times that I was afraid of doing this so much and he assured me every time that I was doing nothing wrong. Since then I have found out that his house and everything he owns has been seized by the it's bc he hasn't paid taxes since 1996. He also has several malpractice suits against him. He's been under a lot of heat lately and he's claiming I forged the prescriptions. I'm scared to death and don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, brandy

I am asking for advise as my sister is an alcoholic, functional,

I am asking for advise as my sister is an alcoholic, functional, as they call it. A bit back she took my Drivers License, as I was recovering from back surgery and I gave her my credit card to pay for some things I needed. I keep a copy of my medical records, just the ones from my fracture to my back and basically my family knows where they are. She had an inside friend at a pain clinic that only accepts cash. The "friend" a nurse, helped her get in with my records and as we favor a lot they didn't even bother to look at my Drivers Licence. She got Pain Medications under my name, paid the physician cash or credit card which was in my name as well, she is a signer in case of emergency. I was given a report showing on 3/23/13 and 5/3/13 she filled 240 hydrocodones and 84 valium. My pain phsician pulled up the information on me. I live in Arkansas and I do not know the law here but my physician is giving me until the end of this week to clear up my name. He said it's just like cleaning up identity theft with credit. It is in no way the same as neither happen over night. My physician has the PMP software that he just received and the medication came up with my information. I was told to go to the pharmacy and get a copy of the log the patients sign. I did that and the pharmacist, upon showing my identification, said, "that is absolutely not you that dropped and picked those up." She also copied the sign in log...definately not my signature. That wasn't good enough once I got back. Now he wants the prescriptions to be put in her name by the physician and the pharmacy change the information to hers. No way in the world would any physician take responsibility for writing a prescription and then upon knowing it was not the patient in the chart, simply rewrite it in her name. My sister, as I said, is an Alcoholic and has 3 children of her own. She has the alcohol problem and in no way will she stand up for me and say, "Yes I did this to her." I don't know where to turn for help. As a note this pain clinic has had like 6 physicians and staff changes in the past year and a half so they are not stable and probably wouldn't know if it was me or her if I walked in the office which was exactly my intent. I even ask if I should just simply go to the DEA and let them know what's going on but I fear for my sister as well as myself. I have a 9 year old Autistic son that very much needs me. I shouldn't but I do with three children and no child support. HELP PLEASE!!! Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you, Sandy.

A prescription controlled substance was forged in my name (by

A prescription controlled substance was forged in my name (by my wife) and filled an picked up by the same. I have never been presribed this drug (vicondin) by this doctor or any other doctor in at least 3 years. My wife is an addicted to sedatives and opiods. As soon as I discovered that she had forged prescriptions in my name her family and I immediately intervened and put in Detox within 48hrs. Do I need to do anything else to protect myself (and as a result my children) from this activity? Do I need to report this to the authorities (and who?) to not be considered and 'accessory to the fact'. There is also fraud against my employers insurance company (she filled the prescriptions through our insurance company)? I am trying to hold our marriage together but I want to abide by the law in every sense. Please help.

Penalty for Obtain Drugs by Misrepresent. - 2nd offense

Penalty for Obtain Drugs by Misrepresent - 2nd offense I have a previous conviction from 2009/2010 for Felony Prescription Fraud in Virginia. I was initally charged with 10 different felonies (elements of the crime - forgery, uttery, obtaining by fraud, etc.) in two different counties, however most of the charges were nole prosed, and I was left with 2 felony charges (1 in each county). These were initially entered for deferred disposition under the first time offender program, but I violated my probation (in large part due to some issues surrounding a child that was diagnosed with leukemia and entering treatment at that time) and was issued a show cause, convicted of the felonies and sentenced to serve a year in prison (Total sentence was 5 years, but 4 were suspended). I did my year (10 months) and was release in Oct 2010. I have been mostly substance free since then, though I have had a legally obtained prescription on several occasions. In October, I was issued an arrest warrant for 2 charges of Obtaining Drugs by Misrepresentation (etc.). These charges date back to Jan and Feb of 2012. I accessed my Health Insurance, and I have EOBs with a date of service for these charges. The medications (Lortab, Percocet) were prescribed to my by a physician - however, I did not fill them under my insurance. I paid cash for them. Is this something that is just a matter of clearing up by showing my physician records, or did I truly break the law? If so, what are the chances of getting probation or alternative sentencing as opposed to jail time?Other than the 2009/2010 charges, my record is arrest/conviction free.
