Lawyer in Marietta: Prescription Drug Charge

Powerful Defense Counsel for Prescription Drug Offenses

It can start out innocently enough: you have surgery, come down with an illness or sustain an injury, and your doctor prescribes a medication. Before you know it, you can't live without the drugs, and you find yourself getting your hands on it any way you can after your prescription runs out. This is the point where you step over the legal boundaries and enter that realm where your illegal prescription drug activity can lead to an arrest, conviction and penalties.

If this is you, it's crucial to enlist my help in defending you and seeking to have your charges dismissed or reduced. I am Attorney Stahlman, and my criminal defense firm in Marietta, Stahlman Law, P.C., has been successfully defending individuals charged with prescription drugs crimes and other drug offenses for over 20 years. I have the experience and skills to help you.

Common Types of Prescription Drugs in Crime Cases

Prescription drugs commonly involved in drug crimes include drugs such as Xanax, OxyContin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, Percocet, Vicodin and others. Depending on the amount of illegal prescription drugs found, you could be charged with possession or even trafficking. You could find yourself with added charges as well, such as prescription fraud, identity fraud, forgery, altering prescriptions and more. Charges involving prescription drugs can result in felony convictions, and penalties can range from jail or prison, driver's license suspension, fines, probation and being expelled from school. You could also have DUI charges added on if you were driving while possessing illegal prescription drugs.

Prescription Drug Attorney in Marietta: Protecting Your Rights

As a criminal defense attorney, it's my job to protect you and your rights. The law is strict and not very sympathetic when it comes to drug crimes. In addition to the stress of an arrest, or even if you are just under investigation, you may be feeling the terrible consequences of addiction. Sometimes it's possible to convince the courts that rehabilitation would be a better solution than jail. You may have been charged with possession but the drugs were not yours. Whatever the situation, I can help. I offer a free, confidential consultation to discuss your case and assess your options.
