If he has the exact same script, and is not shown by prosecution that he is abusing them, then your sons chances are probably convincing the judge that he just forgot his own medication and had to use hers. This is just my opinion.

The script needs to be for the same medication and same dosage thought. For example, a 10/325 norco. If your son is prescribed a lower dose, like a 5/500 and took his sisters 10/325 then that could be an issue. Unless he was splitting them.

It will depend upon how your son presents himself and how the issue is presented to the DA or the court/jury if it goes to trial. If both look exactly the same you have a better argument.

Will the judge believe him?

The proper question is, will the DA believe him and dismiss, or will the jury believe him at trial.

Would any serious person believe the story? Does he have proof of his own identical prescription?

If serious about hiring counsel for this, and this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me.
