Syracuse Prescription Drug Crime Defense Attorney

Recent years have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs. Prosecutors have taken notice and are cracking down on individuals who illegally possess or sell prescribed drugs. The total weight of the pills or medication is used in most cases to determine the amount you will be charged with.

The actual amount of a drug in a pill may be minor compared to the weight of the overall pill; the entire weight will typically count, however, which can easily lead to felony charges, even if pills are possessed for use and not with the intent to sell. That is why it is important to have an experienced Syracuse prescription drug crime defense lawyer on your side.
