Ocean County Prescription Drug Charges

Trouble just seems to follow some people. A lakewood woman who had just been found guilty of aggravated assault in Ocean County Superior Court, was arrested for illegal possession of prescription drugs. She was allegedly attempting to obtain a prescription through forgery or fraud. The narcotics in question were oxycodone pills. The Ocean County suspect apparently obtained a legitimate prescription for the drugs and then attempted to alter it to allow her to obtain a refill(s). Representatives at the pharmacy were suspicious, called the doctor to confirm the discrepancy, and then the police.

The woman is already on probation and will undoubtedly be violated for picking up these new charges. She can expect Third Degree Offenses of Obtaining Prescription Drugs by Forgery or Fraud and Theft by Deception. The jail exposure when she is sentenced in Ocean County shall be 0 to 5 years in jail. It should be noted, however, that this suspect no longer enjoys the presumption against incarceration as she already has a felony conviction on her record. There is a good chance of jail in this case absent approval for drug court.

I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
