Accused of Illegal Possession of Prescription Drugs? Be Proactive. Our Drug Crimes Lawyer Can Help
A close friend decides to give you some of his prescription pain medication, or you obtain them fraudulently by forging a prescription. You go ahead and consume some and get behind the wheel. Suddenly, the police stop you, and a random search is conducted where illegal prescription drugs are discovered in your possession. These prescription drugs are classified as controlled Class C substances in Massachusetts, given their powerful and addictive nature – that’s why an arrest is likely.
If you are a consumer, addict, or health care professional and are facing prescription drug charges, you must take this situation very seriously. Even small amounts of a prescription drug proven to have been illegally acquired or prescribed can lead you down a difficult path of regrets and hardships. You risk jail time and probation if convicted. And if you are a high school or college student charged with prescription drug crimes, you may be expelled from school, lose any financial aid, and even be jailed.
You don’t have to suffer the consequences if you can turn the situation around. Our Worcester prescription drug crime lawyer is ready to help.
