Drug Charges

Drug Charge Lawyer

Serving Joliet, Will County, Cook County and the Surrounding Communities

Drug charges include the possession of a controlled substance, trafficking, sales, transportation, prescription fraud, and manufacturing. Drug charges are serious offenses that carry a wide range of severe penalties, including incarceration. Prosecutors take the nation’s war on drugs seriously and vigorously pursue convictions. The trend is to make examples out of the people that are considered offenders.

No matter what type of drug crime you’re charged with, it is crucial to hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. This is the best way to ensure that your rights are protected.

How can Opioids and Other Prescription Drugs be Against the Law?

As a criminal defense attorney, I provide representation for clients charged with illegal drug charges as well as those charged with violating the law concerning prescription drugs, including the purchase and sale of such drugs.

Possessing, distributing, or using prescription drugs without a valid prescription is a felony in the State of Illinois. A conviction for any of these offenses can mean imprisonment and heavy fines.

In recent years, an opioid epidemic has emerged throughout the country. Abuse has become rampant for certain types of prescription drugs, including codeine containing Tylenol, oxycodone (which is commonly known by OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan), morphine, and Fentanyl.

These drugs are highly addictive and are considered much more addictive than even Heroin. As a result, patients receiving valid prescriptions for real medical problems can become addicted.

However, because prescription drugs are obtained legally through the healthcare system, the gravity of these offenses is often ignored. People who use opioids under prescription often do not realize that they cannot use such drugs without a prescription.

Law enforcement and prosecutors are aware of the growing trend of prescription drug abuse. Charges related to prescription drugs are taken seriously and prosecuted fully.
