The defendant, who had lost his health insurance and could not afford to pay for his prescription medications, presented a forged prescription under his friend’s name (who had health insurance) for medication the defendant had a valid prescription for, was arrested and hired Attorney Topazio to defend him. The defendant who held a real estate license could not afford a conviction as it would cause a suspension of his license. Today, Attorney Topazio was successful in convinced a Judge to continue his client’s case without a finding for nine months. A CWOF is not a conviction under State law.
