Why Was I Charged With A Crime?

Abuse of prescription medication is widespread in the United States. Some of the most commonly abused drugs are Percocet and Vicodin. People commonly become addicted to these and other opioid drugs after they are prescribed them for treatment of pain conditions. The drugs are highly addictive. Once the prescription runs out, the patient may turn to other sources. Possession of stimulants such as Adderall or Ritalin without a prescription can also lead to criminal charges.

Having a drug conviction can affect your life in many ways. Employers may not hire you after learning about your conviction. You could find it difficult to rent an apartment. You may be ineligible for student loans and other government programs.

If you do not have a criminal record, it may be possible to resolve the charges without a conviction.
