The possession, sales and abuse of prescription drugs is taken seriously in Connecticut and these crimes are prosecuted as aggressively as charges involving marijuana and other illegal drugs.

Bridgeport OxyContin Sales and Prescription Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
Many people who are arrested for prescription drug fraud did not intend to break the law. After a surgical procedure or an illness where painkillers are prescribed, such as OxyContin or Vicodin, a patient may become addicted to the medication. Once the initial prescription runs out, that person may forge or fake prescriptions in order to obtain more of the drug.
Unfortunately, forging or altering a prescription is a criminal offense that can have a significant long-term impact on a person's life. A person who is trying to sell or distribute prescription drugs can face increased penalties, including jail time and a permanent criminal record that will limit opportunities for employment and education.
