Possession or Distribution of Prescription Medications
Because of the explosion in the recreational use of prescription painkillers and antidepressants, law enforcement agencies across Utah are cracking down on prescription drug offenses; the same as cocaine and other illegal narcotics.
This aggressive enforcement commonly results in felony charges against people caught with a couple of pills. Even if your intentions were innocent, you cannot presume to talk your way out of this. With a criminal record and possible prison time at stake, you need an attorney who can meet the charges head on and aggressively fight for you.
Salt Lake City criminal defense lawyer and former police officer Greg S. Law knows how to fight drug charges. If you are accused of unlawfully possessing or distributing prescription drugs, contact us for a free initial consultation.

- Carrying loose pills in your pocket or a non-original container
- Borrowing a prescription painkiller from a friend
- Giving pills to friends or family members
- Stealing and selling pills from Mom or Dad's medicine cabinet
