In cases of unauthorized possession of prescription painkillers or other medications, we’ll look for ways to keep your case out of the criminal justice system altogether. Especially if you’re a first-time offender, you will have the opportunity to resolve your case in drug court or through any of several approaches that can lead to dismissal of the original charge and eventual expungement of the case.
When larger quantities are involved, you could be charged with felony counts of drug trafficking or possession with intent to distribute. While looking for ways to suppress the evidence of drug possession or sales, we also work on getting the prosecution to reduce the charges to mere possession. This can protect your future interest in expungement and a clean criminal record.
We advise people charged with unlawful possession or delivery of such prescription drugs as OxyContin, Vicodin, Adderall or anabolic steroids. Our lawyers also work with people accused of forgery or fraud in obtaining or refilling a prescription. Most of the cases we see involve possession cases charged in Cook County or Chicago’s collar counties, but we can also defend people under investigation or indictment for large-scale prescription drug cases in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Our aggressive approach to the investigation and defense of drug crimes can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. Contact the Law Office of Robert Kerr, LLC, to discuss your options with an experienced Chicago prescription drug crime defense lawyer.
