Many people are surprised to learn just how serious prescription drug crimes are. Just because a drug is not typically known as being a "street drug" does not make it any less of a crime. Prescription fraud and prescription drug crimes are heavily prosecuted and can mean significant fines and jail time. One of the most common prescription drugs that are illegally obtained, sold or trafficked is OxyContin. Also known generically as oxycodone, this is a highly addictive drug that is frequently abused.

Sarasota, Florida, Criminal Attorney

OxyContin/oxycodone is one of the most powerful prescription painkillers. Pharmacies and physicians consider it a controlled substance as it has become a recreational drug among many drug users. In fact, pharmacies keep a particularly close and strict count of OxyContin/oxycodone due to its high popularity among prescription drug abusers. While OxyContin or oxycodone is legal if obtained with a valid prescription, if obtained illegally through prescription fraud or theft, it can be considered a felony.

Whether you have been charged with illegal possession of OxyContin/oxycodone or trafficking of OxyContin/oxycodone, you face very serious criminal penalties.
