If you are found to be in possession of a prescription drug without a legitimate prescription, you can be arrested and charged with drug possession. This is a very serious criminal offense, typically charged as a felony with potential jail time.
Law enforcement in Van Nuys and the San Fernando Valley target individuals illegally using or possessing prescription drugs, including the following:
- Other psychiatric medications
- Other painkillers
In any prescription drug possession case, is crucial that you immediately obtain legal representation from an experienced Van Nuys criminal defense lawyer to defend you against the charges. In many drug possession cases, a person’s search and seizure rights were violated, or they had a lawful right to possess the drug. In other cases, negotiations to fight for alternative sentencing may be the most viable option.
