Prescription Drug Charges

Alabama Drug Crime Attorney

Crimes involving prescription drugs are on the rise. Just because prescription drugs are not considered illegal does not mean a person will avoid prosecution should he or she commit an offense involving the unlawful use, possession, or distribution of a prescription drug. Furthermore, like all other drug crimes, prescription drug charges carry heavy penalties, including incarceration in state or federal prison, large fines, community service, probation or parole, and mandatory drug treatment or counseling.

If you have been charged for your involvement in a prescription drug crime, there is no reason you should face your charges alone. An Alabama drug crime attorney at Eversole Law, LLC can be of invaluable assistance in defending your case and helping you fight your charges throughout the entire criminal process.
