Get The Help You Need Against Prescription Drug Fraud

People from all walks of life — housewives, college students, radio talk show hosts, celebrities, professionals, blue collar workers — can become addicted to painkillers and other prescription drugs. An addiction to prescription medication can make an otherwise law-abiding citizen turn to crime to get the pills or medicine they need to stop their intense cravings and prevent drug withdrawal.

The criminal lawyers at our firm have been defending clients against drug crimes and other offenses for over 20 years.

At Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we can defend you against a variety of criminal charges and activity related to prescription medication, including:

Drug Treatment And Rehabilitation, Instead Of Jail Or Prison

As experienced drug defense attorneys, we have seen too many people’s lives ruined by the war on drugs. In our opinion, both society and the people charged with drug crimes would be better served by focusing on treating and rehabilitating drug offenders. Locking people up is not the solution. When defending against charges for possession of prescription drugs, we work hard to help our clients avoid jail or prison time.

If we are unable to have your drug charge reduced or dismissed, we may be able to negotiate a reduced charge, or a reduced or suspended sentence. While each sentence is dependent upon the facts of the case, it is sometimes possible to work out a sentencing option involving drug treatment, community service, fines, and other alternatives to jail.

Serious Penalties For Possessing Prescription Drugs In Virginia

In Virginia, whether you are facing a felony or misdemeanor crime will depend on the type of drug and the amount of drug or controlled substance you allegedly possessed:

  • Schedule II drugs include powerful painkillers and stimulants such as methadone, Ritalin, morphine, cocaine and methamphetamine. Possession of these types of drugs is a felony with a possible sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500.
  • Schedule III drugs include medications such as Vicodin, hydrocodone, Special K, fentanyl, steroids and other depressants. Possessing these drugs is a misdemeanor and the potential penalty is up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.
  • Schedule IV drugs include less addictive painkillers, tranquilizers and anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax, Valium and others. Possession of a Schedule IV drug is a misdemeanor with a possible penalty of up to six months in jail and fines of up to $1,000.
