Different Types of Prescription Drug Charges

One of the most common prescription-related drug charges is possession of a prescription drug without a valid prescription.

If you have a prescription drug, are stopped by law enforcement, and are unable to show them a prescription in your name for that drug, you may be charged.

If you’re found guilty of possession of a prescription drug that’s also a Schedule I or Schedule II drug, sentencing can be incredibly severe.

Some common Schedule I and Schedule II prescription drugs are OxyContin, Dilaudid, Vicodin, and Demerol.

Client Reviews

Some of the penalties upon conviction include:

  • 4-year felony for possession of fewer than 50 grams
  • 20-year felony for possession of 50 – 450 grams
  • 30-year felony for possession of 450 – 1000 grams
  • Life-sentence felony for possession of 1,000 grams or more

If you’ve been arrested for a prescription drug offense, an experienced attorney can investigate whether or not law enforcement properly collected evidence and determine if your fourth amendment rights were violated with an unreasonable search and seizure.

In addition to possession, you might also be dealing with other prescription pill charges, such as fraudulently obtaining a prescription, falsified prescriptions, selling prescription drugs, or the distribution of prescription drugs.

Generally speaking, the punishments associated with a guilty verdict will be determined by the nature of the offense as well as any previous criminal convictions on your record.
