Illegal Possession of Prescription Medications – Orlando Defense Attorneys

In Florida, illegal possession of prescription medications is a serious drug charge requiring avid defense. If you stand accused of prescription fraud in Florida; forging a doctor’s signature in order to obtain Oxycontin or Codeine; "shopping doctors" to obtain excessive amounts of drugs, or other prescription drug charges, the state of Florida can hand down extremely harsh criminal penalties.

If you have been charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs, there is far too much at stake to be without skilled legal counsel the moment you are arrested. Before you answer any questions from law enforcement, or make a plea bargain, you should call an Orlando criminal defense attorney at the Kramer Law Firm for a free consultation.

Defense against Illegal Possession of Prescription Medications in Florida

We will look for procedural and technical flaws in the police work as well as other possible defenses. Our experienced drug defense lawyers will use errors in the case against you to get your case dismissed or your charges reduced significantly.

For instance, the police may not have had probable cause to stop you, search your person, and seize the medications. If they obtained evidence illegally, we can take action to have that evidence suppressed. Further defenses include genuine innocence, lack of possession, lack of knowledge, mistaken identity and entrapment.

Even innocent people wind up facing charges for the illegal possession of prescription medications. It may be that the prescription bottle expired, or the drugs were stored in a travel pill box instead of the approved container with proof of prescription.

If we believe it is in your best interest to plead guilty, we are often able to negotiate reduced charges with prosecutors, helping you to avoid the most serious criminal penalties for Florida’s drug crimes.

Drug Court and Pretrial Diversion

In many cases, charges of possession of prescription medications can be resolved by going through Florida’s unique Drug Court program. By submitting to counseling and periodic medical drug testing – and by meeting other key requirements – many clients’ charges are dismissed.

A person with no criminal record may be eligible for Florida’s Pretrial Diversion program. Like the Drug Court program, this process offers first time offenders a way to resolve charges without serving jail time. By meeting with the probation officer regularly, passing drug tests, and completing education requirements, offenders will have their charges dismissed.

Prescription drugs are highly addictive. Our drug defense attorneys will do all we can to reduce the charges in your case. We believe that an early coordinated strategy in cases of illegal possession of prescription medications is highly beneficial to our client’s well-being. We help our clients enter into counseling or treatment programs. Our drug defense attorneys work closely with community addiction treatment providers that are viewed favorably by Central Florida courts.
