Re: unlawful disposeal of percriptsion medication

What you described is horrible. If left unchecked, these people could kill someone. You need to report this activity to the police and seriously consider getting a restraining order against the folks that are messing with the meds. Don't wait til someone gets hurt.

The amount of jail time that the defendants would do, if convicted, would be determined by what crime the prosecutor can prove. It is too varied to give you more than a speculative answer. It could be from no time to ten years.

If they continue to do it, you need to act to prevent it from reoccurring. Act now.

Good Luck
