Prescription Drug Charges
Over the past decade, prescription drug abuse has become a widespread problem in Texas and throughout the nation. In order to deter this issue, law enforcement officials and prosecutors are coming down hard on those charged with the illegal possession of prescription drugs.
Charges and penalties vary based on the type of prescription drug and the amount in possession, but all individuals who face conviction are risking their future. That is why it is so important for your lawyer to be a relentless fighter, working tirelessly to protect your rights.
Protecting Your Future After a Prescription Drug Crime
When you work with the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, protecting your freedom is our priority. Everyone deserves an aggressive criminal defense, and our attorneys will ensure that you receive it.
We can help with any type of prescription drug charge, including those surrounding:
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Prescription fraud
- Forging a prescription
- Prescription theft
- Using the Internet to purchase illegal prescription drugs
- Illegal distribution of prescription drugs
- Trafficking of prescription drugs
When Addiction is an Issue in Your Drug Charge
Obtaining a full dismissal of charges is always our goal, and we have been routinely successful in obtaining that result. However, if the evidence stacked against you is strong, and we are unable to secure dropped charges, we can explore alternative options to help you mitigate the consequences.
If you face prescription drug charges due to a chemical addiction, you may have an opportunity to enlist in a recovery program as a way to reduce your conviction penalties. While there are no guarantees, if you are serious about getting clean, our law firm may be able to negotiate a favorable plea with the state’s attorney, if obtaining a full dismissal is not an option.
