Consumer Product Tampering
Product tampering can be as petty as a prank or as serious as the alteration of prescription drugs. The law is strict concerning tampering with food, drugs, and other consumer products. While some may see tampering as joke, law enforcement officials take it very seriously, and recognize just how dangerous it can be.

The Penalties for Tampering
Tampering is defined as any act that changes a product in a way that could lead to injury. It can be classified in different ways depending on the circumstances surrounding the offense. These classifications include:
- Threatening to tamper with a product is classified as a third-degree felony.
- Tampering with a product is classified as a second-degree felony.
- Tampering with a product, leading to injury, is classified as a first-degree felony.
Convictions for felony-grade charges can lead to numerous social stigmas, employment difficulties, and even losing the right to vote. These charges are often coupled with more serious accusations depending on the crime. For example, attempting to poison a person can couple tampering charges with attempted murder charges, possibly creating more legal complications.
If you have been charged with tampering, the first step to defend your rights is finding a solid, experienced legal team to help you. Contact the Denton criminal lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560 to discover what kinds of options may exist for you in your case today.
