Athens Possession of Prescription Drugs Attorney

Are You Being Accused of Using Prescription Drugs for Recreational Purposes?

Many people don’t think anything of sharing their prescription medication with a friend who is sick or in need. Unfortunately, possessing prescription drugs that have not been legally prescribed to you by a doctor could result in criminal charges, including prescription drug fraud—not to mention a sentence and criminal record that could affect your future.

Review the details of your case with an Athens drug crime defense lawyer and start planning your strategy. Call (706) 705-5122 now.

Prescription Drug Possession

The sentence for possession of prescription drugs is based on a number of factors, such as the amount of the medication, the type of substance and the offender’s criminal history.

Potential penalties could include:

  • Jail time
  • Expensive fines
  • Mandatory completion of a drug rehabilitation program.

If you were caught with a large amount of prescription drugs in your possessions, you could be charged with intent to distribute. As a more serious offense, this could result in a longer prison sentence and more fines.

In the case of a felony conviction, you could face a number of additional consequences. With a felony on your record, you could be ineligible for certain jobs (such as working in a school or at a government agency) and will be prohibited from voting or owning a gun. You could also be turned down for housing and have problems traveling outside of the United States.

There Is Help

If this is your first offense, you may be eligible for a drug diversion program. By successfully completing the terms of the program, your conviction may be removed from your record. A skilled Athens drug crime attorney can also negotiate with the prosecution to have your charges reduced.
