Oklahoma’s Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Act is complex and has been revised frequently over the years. Starting with a free initial consultation, our knowledgeable criminal defense lawyers will advise you on ways to defend against charges involving:
Whether the specific allegation relates to heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana or another controlled dangerous substance, we’ll work tirelessly to defeat unsupported charges and secure an appropriate resolution.
When a certain quantity of a particular drug is seized, state law authorizes a drug trafficking charge. For example, an allegation involving at least 10 grams of heroin or 25 pounds of marijuana would be considered trafficking. This differs from distribution charges where there is no set amount. Sentences vary widely in these cases. Probation is now possible in some instances, but incarceration can run as long as 20 years, so it’s important to retain a qualified defense attorney who can correct misleading evidence and fight back against improper police tactics.
Though prescription drugs benefit those who use them properly, abusing pharmaceuticals can be dangerous or even deadly. Accordingly, Oklahoma law assigns strict punishments to individuals found guilty of prescription drug fraud, which can include forging prescriptions, seeking authorizations from multiple doctors and changing the information on an order. Even something that might seem innocent, such as sending medication to a friend, could have serious consequences. After an arrest pertaining to purported prescription drug misconduct, we review the situation thoroughly to create the strongest defense possible.
