Defense Of Prescription Drug Charges
The variety of prescription drugs available on the market has grown remarkably in recent years. With more availability comes the temptation by some to use drugs like OxyContin and Xanax for recreational purposes rather than their intended therapeutic purpose.
Prosecutors aggressively pursue convictions in such cases. If you have been charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs or falsifying a prescription, you need a strong and effective defense.
Defending Your Rights And Freedom
At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we have more than 30 years of experience defending people accused of drug crimes. We understand the criminal justice system and the law regarding search and seizure and other critical legal issues that drug cases present.
We represent clients charged with a variety of prescription drug crimes, including those alleging:
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Illegal processing of prescription documents
- Prescription forgery
- Illicit sale of prescription drugs
Many prescription drug charge cases present the same legal issues as other drug crime cases. How the medications came into your possession and how the police discovered them are key points to consider. We will examine these and other issues in your case and recommend a defense strategy tailored to your situation. We will zealously protect your rights at all stages of the legal process.
Prescription drug charges alleging alteration of a prescription can be challenging to defend against. Physical evidence usually exists in the form of the altered prescription itself, the purchaser’s signature and video recordings of the transaction. In difficult cases like these, we can argue for probation or a drug court solution, which can help you avoid jail and petition for expungement of the conviction from your criminal record.
