Possession or Distribution of OxyContin or Percocet

Oxycodone (as contained in OxyContin or Percocet) is a Schedule II drug that is illegal to possess in Maryland without a prescription. The police pursue these crimes aggressively, and they sometimes charge perfectly law abiding individuals because they don’t want to take the time to investigate whether or not the person is actually authorized to have OxyContin. Even a single errant Percocet pill stuck in a car seat can cause big problems, and can even lead to a jail sentence if handled the wrong way.

I know how to get these cases dismissed, or otherwise resolved favorably. Call me at (301) 556-8709 right now, because your future is important.

The maximum penalties for these crimes are high, but I can help you avoid these consequences. The maximum penalty for possessing OxyContin or Percocet is 4 years in jail and a $25,000 fine. For distributing, or possession with intent to distribute OxyContin or Percocet, the maximum is 20 years and a $25,000 fine for a first offense. A second offense carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years. Possession is a misdemeanor, but distribution is a felony, as is possession with intent to distribute.

There can be a lot of problems with the State’s case that they may not see coming. I can exploit the State’s lack of preparation to help you win your case. Proving possession can be remarkably difficult, and there are often problems with the search that led to the police finding the pills of OxyContin or Percocet. You may have had some sort of prescription at some point that the officer failed to consider. Even if the law and the facts aren’t on our side, I can often use my years of experience handling these cases to present you and your case in the best possible light and negotiate a favorable outcome.
