Being charged with prescription fraud in Arizona is not a light matter.

If you find yourself facing these charges, or other prescription drug no matter how innocent you are, do not try making explanations to police officers or prosecutors. Their purpose is to get evidence of guilt. You need the help of a respected Yuma criminal defense attorney.
