Metairie, LA asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Mississippi

Q: My mom forged and delivered 5 opiate scripts during bipolar episodes. Whats your jail time guess?

She's Stage 5 manic bipolar with doctors records. She was arrested at the beginning of last year for forging and "cashing" 5 oxy scripts, and shes been indicted. She since has gotten on suboxone and moved to Louisiana in with me, and held a couple jobs, more than before. She has a decent moral case, as well as mental. She will be stuck with a public defender and I'm trying to help gather a case in this speedy process.
