Prescription Drug Crimes Attorney

Law enforcement officials aggressively pursue prescription drug crime arrests. While prescription drugs are legal under defined circumstances, unauthorized possession and sale of prescription drugs is illegal, and crimes carry severe penalties.

If you have been accused of committing a prescription drug crime in Connecticut, The Law Office of Jerome Paun can provide you with the effective defense representation you need. Jerome Paun has more than 35 years of legal experience. He handles drug crimes and other criminal defense matters for clients in Willimantic and throughout Eastern Connecticut.

Have You Been Accused Of A Prescription Drug Crime?

We can defend you against all types of prescription drug crime charges, including, but not limited to, those involving illegal possession and sale of:

  • Oxycodone
  • OxyContin
  • Percocet
  • Valium
  • Morphine
  • Adderall
  • Xanax
  • Klonopin

Not infrequently people become addicted to prescription medications that were legitimately prescribed for them as a result of some sort of serious physical injury or illness that leaves them suffering and in pain. When the doctor cuts-off the prescription or reduces the dosage for fear of addiction, the patient finds illegal sources for the prescription medication to ease his or her pain and satisfy his or her addiction.

Other people simply become addicted to prescription medications as a result of recreational drug abuse.

Some others simply are found carrying their legally prescribed narcotic medication in something other than its original container.

In any case, prescription drug charges involve serious criminal penalties including potentially lengthy jail sentences. With effective legal defense in appropriate cases, charges may be resolved with a diversionary program that not only avoids jail-time but also avoids a conviction, if successfully completed. Depending on your circumstances and the facts of your case, we will work hard to help you get the treatment and support you need to minimize, if not avoid completely jail time and a conviction.

Prescription Fraud And Forgery

We defend clients against prescription drug crime charges and related charges such as prescription drug fraud and forgery. These charges often accompany a prescription drug crime arrest and can increase the possibility of conviction and the potential penalties imposed. We can defend you on all fronts, working tirelessly to help you minimize, if not avoid, the consequences of a prescription drug crime conviction.
