Prescription Drug Crimes

Accused of illegal possession or sale of prescription drugs?

If you are accused of illegally possessing or selling prescription drugs, you are in serious legal hot water, and your personal freedoms could be permanently compromised if the right actions are not taken. At my firm, The Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., we have an uncommon understanding of the criminal justice process. I formerly served as a prosecutor for the State of Texas, and I have watched and learned how the District Attorney and the State prepare a case for trial. This insight allows me to create a strategy to defend my clients that has a better chance of success.

The first and most critical step is to contact my office so I can evaluate the evidence that has led to the charges against you. Your case could have serious flaws. If so, you can be confident that I will exploit this on your behalf. There are countless people serving time today that could have been found "not guilty" had they had a better quality defense lawyer. You can't afford to take chances if you are facing charges involving a prescription drug crime, as you could spend years in state prison if you are convicted. Whether your case involves Oxycontin, Vicadin or another type of prescription drug, you need to get into action and get your defense case moving forward. I should analyze your case without delay, and prior to formal charges being filed whenever possible. You may be a victim of a violation of rights if law enforcement performed an illegal stop, search or seizure of evidence.

Consequences of Possession or Sale of Prescription Drugs

Whether you are a doctor, pharmacist, nurse or a regular person, you can expect to serve time if you are found guilty. Many of these drugs, if the police believe you had enough that you intended to sell, will be charged as a first degree felony. The minimum sentence in these cases is 10 years and a fine as high as $100,000 is possible for certain drugs (Penalty Group 3 or 4). Each case is unique. Allow me to review exactly what happened to you and how the charges came about. You may have better options than you expect. I know the system and I will carefully look over every detail of the case.
