Prescription Drug Charges And The Law
If you have been arrested or face drug charges related to prescription drugs, representation from a strong criminal defense attorney is essential. Some of the unlawful actions associated with prescription drugs include “doctor shopping,” seeking multiple prescriptions, forging a prescription or obtaining prescriptions in other illegal ways.
Consequences for prescription drug crimes have been strengthened by a recent North Carolina law, the “Strengthen Opioid Misuse Prevention (STOP) Act,” which went into effect on January 1, 2020. It is designed to decrease the number of people misusing prescription drugs. David B. Smith, Attorney at Law, can explain how this law may impact your case. Drug charges require a quick legal response; to receive help, call Mr. Smith’s office in Greensboro at 336-574-2533 today.
A Former Prosecutor Can Help You Construct A Strong Defense
As a former prosecutor, attorney Smith’s extensive legal background enables him to anticipate how and what the other side will do and begin to create a strategic defense based on the details of your case.
The circumstances of your arrest and the prosecution’s case matter. Mr. Smith will research factors such as the following:
- How you acted and answered officers during questioning
- If you had access to an attorney during questioning by police
- Whether or not your Miranda rights were read to you – which can result in a confession being denied as testimony
- Negative personal factors that may discredit testimony against you by an eyewitness
He will carefully examine every detail of your case and is a strong, aggressive advocate when representing you in court and during negotiations. Protecting your due process rights are vital, and Smith will fight to get you the best possible outcome.
