Prescription Drugs And Criminal Charges

Prescription Drug CrimesIn the last several years, prescription drug abuse has become increasingly common in Florida. As a result, the state has begun to crack down on instances of illegal possession of prescription drugs such as opioid-based pain relievers. However, investigators and law enforcement officials do not always get it right. Not everyone arrested for prescription fraud is guilty. Many have never been in trouble with the law before.

Even carrying a prescription drug for a friend or a family member can result in criminal charges that will affect you for the rest of your life. To protect your future, seek legal advice as soon as possible if you have been accused of illegal possession of a prescription drug. Call 866-371-5615 for a free initial consultation*.
