I gave a prescription to a pharmacy that I had from a while

I gave a prescription to a pharmacy that I had from a while ago written for my son when I called pharmacy to see if it was ready they told me it was a forgery now the local police are calling telling me to come in and talk to them I am hesitant because although I have had no problems in over 10 years I have a record I am going to see dr who the prescription was from apparently he signed something brought to him by police and said he did not write script. I am going to ask him to call police and revise his statement and indicate it could be his prescription the dr told my family that he wants to help me in this situation not hurt me it was the pharmacy that called police Do I have to go see police they have only called and asked me to come in to answer a few questions Will they come to my house. Please advise I don't want to lose the life I have built up these past 10+ yearsJA: OK. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I wanted to see if I could have the dr take it down a notch by stating it could be a prescription he gave my son that was lost we did have lost prescriptions that he rewrote and he was getting treated by this dr with this medication for years up until last yearJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: My biggest concern is that I have had prior legal trouble with medication in 2004 and I was convicted of crime I know that will give the police more reason to want to have me come in and talk to them and incriminate myself
