Prescription Drug Crimes

Possession of Oxy or Xanax Without a Prescription

Sometimes the person caught with Oxycodone or Oxycontin pills had a few left over from their own painkillers so they sold them to a coworker. Or the prescription drug seller is a student who sells another anxious student a few of their Xanax tablets or leftover codeine cough syrup to settle their nerves. Unfortunately, the person they thought they were helping turns them in to the police, and they are charged with the illegal sale of a prescription drug.

An Effective Defense From an Experienced Drug Crimes Attorney

I’m Waukesha and Milwaukee prescription drugs lawyer Craig Kuhary. I understand how people can innocently or not-so-innocently run into problems with the law. I have represented hundreds of people charged with drug crimes in southeastern Wisconsin. I can help you. Contact my Waukesha defense firm, Walden, Neitzke & Kuhary, S.C.

I will immediately begin working on your behalf, gathering and reviewing police reports and obtaining a pretrial offer from the prosecutor. If you have a drug problem yourself and it has contributed to you committing prescription fraud or illegally selling your prescription to buy another drug, I will get you into a treatment program as soon as possible. Proof of successful treatment can work in your favor.

Defense for All Prescription Drug Crime Charges

I can handle any prescription drug case involving Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Xanax, Hydrocodone, Vicodin, or Codeine, including:

  • Illegally buying or selling a prescription drug
  • Prescription fraud: stealing a prescription pad, forged prescriptions, doctor shopping to obtain a prescription by fraud
  • Illegal online sale of a prescription drug or fraudulent prescriptions
  • Driving under the influence of drugs

Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of Drugs (OUI)

I’ve seen a big increase in the number of people arrested and charged with “operating under the influence” because of prescription drugs, such as Xanax and Ambien. These cases are treated the same as a DUI involving alcohol. Even if you are taking your drugs appropriately and within the therapeutic range, if it affects your ability to safely operate your vehicle, you can be charged with impaired driving.

Unlike blood alcohol level, the amount of a particular drug that you have in your bloodstream is not specified. If it is above a therapeutic level, that may be a problem, but if you are taking your medication properly and are pulled over, are you really impaired? That is the question to be answered in your defense.
