Does This Typical Road to a Drug Trafficking Arrest Sound Familiar?

Many people who are arrested for prescription drug trafficking fall into this situation almost unwittingly. It is not uncommon to hear stories of a chain of events like the following:

An injury leaves a person in need of pain relief. Doctors prescribe narcotic painkillers. After the injury has healed, the person discovers that he or she has developed a drug dependency. It becomes more difficult to get enough drugs to satisfy the habit. At the same time, money is in short supply as the person struggles to cover up for life problems (such as missing work and falling behind on rent payments) triggered by the drug problem.

Meanwhile, the person learns of friends or even strangers who are willing to pay good money for OxyContin pills, Percocet pills or even Duragesic fentanyl transdermal system patches. One sale leads to more. The person scrambles to get more prescriptions, fill those prescriptions and sell individual units at high prices to fund the developing habit. In serious cases of drug addiction, the person may forge prescriptions or doctor shop in order to obtain more drugs to sell and consume. It is not uncommon for a habitual prescription drug user and seller to cross the line into dealing illegal street drugs, as well.

At any point along the way, a tip-off or a drug bust may result in serious criminal charges, a conviction and a criminal record. A drug trafficking arrest is a serious legal challenge that demands a highly experienced criminal defense attorney.
