Criminal Defense Lawyers of Kurtz & Blum Discuss Defending Cases of Prescription Drug Fraud
Raleigh, NC Criminal Attorneys Address Considerations that are Unique to the Defense of Rx Drug Cases
Most people who've been seriously injured have had to take pain medication. Anyone who has had to take large quantities of pain medications for any period of time likely had trouble when it came time to stop. Some people just can't stop and, since they're taking pain medication, they probably don't have the best judgment. It's at times like these that people make very serious mistakes. It's at times like these that people do anything they can to get more pain medicine.
These are people who don’t set out to be criminals, people who never consciously decided to break the law, but that's what happened. Frequently, people who are charged with obtaining controlled substances by fraud have no criminal record and have no idea how this could possibly have happened to them. Unfortunately, as a general rule, the criminal justice system was designed to administer punishment not to help people overcome addiction.
If you've been charged with obtaining controlled substances by fraud we can help. At Kurtz & Blum, our firm has handled these types of cases since 1998. Luckily the Wake County District Attorney's Office is not blind to the obstacles that must be overcome by people who have become dependent upon pain medication. However, it can still be an uphill battle to orchestrate an outcome in which our client can walk away with no criminal record. It's a battle that we have fought and won many times before.
If you are being investigated for or have been charged with obtaining controlled substances by fraud, call us today. There is no charge for an initial consultation.
