Probably not accurate. A medical authorization that was not valid at the time of the incident doesn't do you much good. It might possibly make your case a bit more sympathetic, and maybe a prosecutor is willing to make a better offer, but I wouldn't bet on it.

There are far better defenses these days than medical authorization. You probably need to talk to a lawyer who practices in that court right away.
