What is a Federal Prescription Drug Fraud Crime? 

As a Fort Lauderdale lawyer could explain, a Federal prescription drug fraud crime is known as a medical professional or practice distributing prescription medicine outside of the practice or to people without a legit medical need. Sometimes you may hear the DEA or FBI refer to these situations as “Pill Mills.”

Under 21 U.S.C. 841 it is a felony crime to knowingly and intentionally distribute a controlled substance other than in the usual course of practice and for a legitimate medical purpose. As well as 21 U.S.C. 846 makes it a crime to attempt or conspire with others in order to violate this federal statute.


Federal prescription drug fraud is a serious issue for everyone, as it is linked to increased healthcare premiums and higher healthcare costs for governments which leads to higher taxes and deductibles. It’s estimated that anywhere from 3-10% of every healthcare dollar in the United States is lost to Fraud. 

Depending on the drug and on the amount that is illegally dispensed, someone convicted of prescription drug fraud could be looking at penalties anywhere from:

  • $10,000 to $75,000 in fines
  • Depending on the magnitude of the drug crime, penalties can also range from $5 million to $50 million. 
  • 15 years in federal prison at minimum depending on the crime
  • 5 to 40 years in prison depending on specific facts of the crime

    In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
