Prescription Drug Crimes in FL
In recent years, Florida has aggressively cracked down on so-called “pill mills”, which engage in the illegal distribution of legal drugs to those without a valid prescription, as well as individuals who illegally use prescription drugs, such as Oxycodone, Ritalin, and Valium.
You could face charges for this type of drug crime if you stand accused of using a false prescription to obtain drugs, of writing fake prescriptions, of providing drugs to someone without a valid prescription. Illegal possession of prescription drugs carries similar penalties to other forms of simple possession, though you could also be charged with fraud if you impersonate someone else to obtain drugs.
Penalties associated with prescription drug charges in our state have been steadily increasing, and they are only projected to continue doing so. Don’t risk spending years in prison and owing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in fines for a crime you may not have committed, on the basis of evidence that was flawed or obtained illegally. Defense strategies will vary greatly depending upon the exact nature of the crime of which you stand accused, and only a lawyer with years of experience knows the system well enough to effectively combat the charges you face.
