Prescription Drug Crime Defense Attorneys

In recent years, use of prescription painkillers and sedatives has increased rapidly. People who have become dependent on these medications sometimes resort to doctor shopping, theft or prescription fraud to obtain a regular supply of these drugs. Sooner or later, they are caught and charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs or other crimes.

Conviction could lead to a jail sentence and permanent criminal record. If you are a doctor, nurse or licensed professional, you could lose your license upon conviction for such a crime. This is a heavy price to pay for a drug dependency problem. However, there are viable defenses to prescription drug charges as well as alternative programs that can help people avoid conviction and jail time.

If you have been charged with illegal possession of prescription medications, call Scott M. Brown & Associates at 979-849-8526. We will work tenaciously to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

Defense Against Prescription Drug Charges

As in cases involving other
drug offenses, the police must have probable cause to arrest you. They must also obtain evidence through legal means. If they violated your rights during the course of the investigation or the arrest, the evidence they found could be suppressed.

Our
criminal defense lawyers aggressively defend every client. If the police have made mistakes or obtained evidence in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, we will seek to suppress that evidence. If we are successful, it could lead to a dismissal of the charge against you.

Help For People Dependent On Prescription Painkillers

The circumstances of your case may make you eligible for a
drug court program or deferred adjudication. These programs may enable you to avoid conviction and jail time, provided that you successfully complete the program. At the completion of the program, the charge against you will be dismissed.

For certain people who are chemically dependent on prescription painkillers, these programs are a highly attractive way to get the drug treatment and counseling services they need — and avoid the worst consequences of a drug arrest.

Our attorneys have a great deal of experience helping people with drug problems in this way. Scott M. Brown & Associates will seek the best possible outcome for you.
