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 simply because they do not take the time to investigate whether the person is actually authorized to possess oxycodone. 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 a year in jail and a fine of up to $1000 for a first offense, 18 months and $5000 for a second offense, and 2 years and $5000 for offenses after the second. For distribution, or possession with intent to distribute (PWID) OxyContin or Percocet, the maximum is 20 years and a $15,000 fine for a first offense. Subsequent offenses have even higher penalties, all the way up to a maximum of 40 years and a fine of $25,000 for a fourth time offender. 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.
