Defenses For Prescription Drug Charges

Most people don't understand the seriousness of possessing prescription drugs without a prescription until they have been arrested and charged with a crime. For many, it is their first contact with the criminal justice system. At Sahn Law Firm, in Charleston, South Carolina, we are here to help.

The consequences of a drug arrest can be severe: fines, possible jail time, and a permanent criminal record. A drug conviction can affect your life in many ways, including employment and the ability to obtain a professional license. You could miss out on opportunities simply because you have a drug conviction on your criminal record. To protect your rights and your future, you should consult a skilled defense attorney immediately.

Protecting Your Rights And Your Future

As a former prosecutor, I know how the criminal justice system in South Carolina handles prescription drug cases. As your lawyer, I can negotiate with the other parties to minimize the potential consequences you face — and if possible, avoid a damaging conviction. I am prepared to handle cases involving all types of prescription drugs, including:

  • OxyContin
  • Fentanyl (duragesic)
  • Vicodin (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)
  • Percocet (oxycodone)
  • Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
  • Phenobarbital
  • Xanax XR (alprazolam)
  • Ambien (zolpidem)
  • Fentora (fentanyl citrate)
  • Ativan (lorazepam)
  • Soma (carisoprodol)
  • Promethazine/codeine syrup
  • Valium (diazepam)

Each prescription drug case is different and may involve issues such as medication abuse, addiction, prescription fraud and fake prescriptions. As your attorney, I will create the best possible defense based on your background, the mitigating factors of your case, and whether police acted properly in the search and drug seizure.
