Aggressive Defense For All Opioid Drug Charges
Opioids are powerful pain killers and mood lifters. They are also classified as controlled substances in Georgia. People with legitimate pain, such as after surgery or to manage ongoing chronic pain, can obtain opioids as medications from pharmacists under these and other labels:
- Oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet)
- Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
- Fentanyl (Duragesic)
- Tylenol with codeine (Tylenol 3)
To legally possess these narcotic medications, patients must keep them in their original personally labeled containers. Both prescription drugs and street drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, are illegal for unauthorized people to possess and distribute.
If you have been investigated, accused or arrested, contact Crosby Law for immediate guidance.
What Is Your Defense?
If you have been charged with a crime involving any type of opioid in Georgia, you need an aggressive defense if you hope to avoid harsh punishments. Your defense may include factors such as the following:
- Illegal search and seizure: Law enforcement agents may have discovered drugs in your possession through illegal search and seizure methods. Proof of this fact may suppress the evidence and result in a case dismissal.
- Chemical dependency: You may be battling an addiction that led you to act uncharacteristically. A proactive defense may include arrangements for you to undergo chemical dependency treatment in lieu of criminal punishment.
- Unintentional circumstances: You may be able to prove that drugs in your possession were planted by someone else and that you were set up or trapped.

Beware The Consequences Of Legal Trouble Involving Any Opioids
An investigation, arrest or conviction associated with any variety of opioids or any other type of prescription drug is a serious matter. A misdemeanor or felony on your record over a prescription drug offense may be as damaging to your future as a conviction involving street drugs.
