Prescriptions That Are Not In Your Name
OxyContin, Hydrocodone and Fentanyl patches are all used for pain management. If you are found in possession of any of these or other pharmaceutical drugs without a valid prescription, you could face criminal drug possession charges.
Similar to the possession of marijuana or cocaine, prescription drug possession can be either a misdemeanor or felony charge in Florida depending on the circumstances of your case. If you are arrested, you immediately need to speak with a criminal defense lawyer.

Identifying All Possible Defenses
What are your constitutional rights? Were they violated during an arrest or at any point in your case? Often the only way to find out is with the help of an experienced attorney, because the prosecution is never going to admit police misconduct or a mistake.
Possible defenses might relate to unlawful search and seizure, entrapment or you may be able to prove you actually had a valid prescription. Whether through pretrial motions or trial, we have the necessary experience to fight for the most favorable outcome.
