  • You had more Vicodin than a doctor prescribed

Upon a second conviction, individuals may be sentenced for up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. They will be incarcerated for at least three years. You may be charged with intending to sell Vicodin if you are found with a large amount of Vicodin and/or packaging materials.
