Prescription Drug Charges Helping People Defend Their Rights Since 1980

Prescription Drug Crimes Attorney in Windham County

Committed to Providing the Experienced Defense You Need

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 Eastern Connecticut, The Law Office of Jerome Paun can provide you with the effective defense representation you need. Our Windham County prescription drug crimes lawyer has over 40 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 & 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.

    • "“ Thank God, I found an attorney who took the time to actually investigate the facts of the case”"
      In 2017, I acquired three felony charges against me that were pending investigation, after many court appearances a friend referred me to Attorney Jerome Paun who had the foresight to actually investigate the complete facts of the case and decided that a neutral district would be beneficial to our case. Attorney Paun with his expertise and caring attitude understood the immediate need to resolve the matter completely. Due to his outstanding perseverance and caring staff, my case was resolved in a very timely and efficient manner. He and his staff went above and beyond to help. I would highly recommend him if you seem to be in need of an attorney. “Thank you again”
