Defense Against Prescription Fraud, Possession, & Distribution

Illegal use of prescription drugs has become widespread in our state over the past decade. Police and prosecutors are even more highly motivated to convict those found guilty of prescription fraud, possession, distribution and other prescription drug crimes. If you are accused of any offense involving prescription drugs, it is in your best interest to immediately contact one of ourskilled Paulding County criminal defense attorneys at Henrickson & Sereebutra.

The attorneys at our firm are trial lawyers that are experienced and professional in defending drug crimes, and in protecting the rights of those accused. We have over five decades of combined legal experience to bring to the table to help you or your loved one defend prescription drug crime charges. Our record includes thousands of cases and hundreds of trials.

Georgia Prescription Drug Laws

According to Georgia Code 16-13-78 (2012), the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain any drug that is considered dangerous through a deceitful manner (fraud, forgery, concealment of fact) is a crime punishable by a misdemeanor. Obtaining prescription medication in this manner can easily result in jail time.

Individuals who fraudulently obtain multiple prescriptions from doctors for the same or a similar prescription could face a serious felony charge. This is known as the act of "doctor shopping," and it could easily result in a prison sentence and substantial fines. Illegally distributing pharmaceutical drugs is just as serious of a crime.

Defending Against Prescription Drug Convictions

Every case is unique. Your situation may be a matter of showing proof of a valid prescription or proof that no fraudulent act was taken in acquiring the prescription drugs. In other cases, an effective plea bargain may offer the most effective solution for an individual. Building a strong defense and protecting your rights in court are just two of the essential elements that a skilled criminal attorney may bring to your case.

As former prosecutors, our drug crime lawyers at Henrickson & Sereebutra know the ins and outs of Georgia law and can prepare legal defenses that anticipate the prosecution's strategy. Our Paulding County prescription drug defense lawyers have extensive knowledge of police procedure and the Georgia court system, which allows us to give clients an edge in their cases, to minimize the charges in a plea bargain or fight to drop the charges entirely.

No matter how serious the charges are, or how overwhelmed you may feel, do not squander your chance at a brighter future. Let our drug defense team at Henrickson & Sereebutra help you explore your legal options and find a positive solution. Do not suffer the consequences of a criminal conviction with a lesser defense!
